Wind without birds

onsdag 3. maj 2017
af Charles Tessier

The weather does not get better those days. The wind is still present and clouds have filled the sky this morning. Add quite cold temperatures and guess what you get : no birds in the nets. Same conditions are expected the next two morning, we just have to be patient.

Anyway, some birds were trapped today, including 2 common redstarts (one already ringed in 2016), 2 goldfinches (one ringed in 2016 also) and 2 lesser redpolls.

The bird of the day is the tree pipit. We ringed the second of the season, and here is its portrait.
