Rain on Our Ringing Parade

torsdag 23. maj 2024
af Mallory Echols

The rain that started during the night seemed to determined to keep our nets closed today. It was still going at the usual 4 a.m. wakeup time and persisted into the mid-afternoon. 

While we occupied ourselves with other work, we could hear the Bee-eaters overheard, though the overcast conditions didn't allow us to see them.

The rain finally stopped, and around 16:00 we were able to safely open the nets in the garden station and catch at least a few birds, including: Common Whitethroat, Spotted Flycatcher, Pied Flycatcher, Chiffchaff, Icterine Warbler, Linnet and Lesser Redpoll. 

Hopefully we'll catch the Wryneck that's been hanging around in the garden, even perching on the nesting box. 

Tomorrow's forecast seems promising for a statisfying day of ringing.
