Back to calm

When I opened the nets at frozen dawn, the clear sky and the absence of wind let me hope for another morning filled with birds. Sadly, a main part of the passerines arrived yesterday had left the site, but some of the laggards were trapped and ringed with the company of a singing wryneck. Nice atmosphere at the sunrise !

Finally, not a lot of birds with a bit more than 40 ringed, but two funny facts :
- the first capture was a young robin ringed in Spain ! That gives good mood early in the morning !
- the last capture was a wryneck, in the same place as yesterday !

Here a picture of this bird which I probably never get tired of :
