Patience, patience...

torsdag 4. maj 2017

The wind grew stronger this morning, so we took our courage in both hands and opened the nets expecting, perhaps, an original capture. But after a little few birds, we were realistic, we had to be patient until the wind drop, which is expected for the week-end.

Fortunately, a pair of yellowhammer brought us a bit of color. They were already ringed : in spring 2015 for the male (bird on the left) and in spring 2014 for the female (bird on the right). A loyal couple, at least to the site.

Tomorrow morning, the weather expected is a combination of rain and wind, so there's a high probability that we'll not open the nets. But a fair weather succeed it in the afternoon. That's the promess of an exciting saturday !

Gærdesmutte - Wren : 1
Jernspurv - Dunnock : 2
Rødhals - Robins : 2
Munk - Blackcap: 1
