It’s been the slowliest morning so far, probably. However, low numbers of birds give me the chance to use skull ossification as criteria to properly age a treecreper as an adult (2nd calendar year or more). There was a recapture of a Song thrush which was ringed last year.

Bird activity in Ässön took place only in the firs two hours. No birds falling into the nets later than that, not even the loyal siskins which have been falling in good number through the whole September (only four today). Wind during the last two hours did not help neither.

Vallen was slow today. Some thrushes were roosting during the night in the bushesh but got scare when setting up the nets. Too bad none of them fall into the nets. We got a good insight of the reed buntins with its new brand winter plumage and a couple of Bearded Reedling was so nice to allow us to observe and manipulated them. Some wrens and dunnocks are still around.

We went to Banvallen today, with a bit of wind in the morning and increasing through the day. It was a slow day, but not bad regarding species; diverse morning. We were pleased to have a Marsh tit after a while and a beautiful Male of nuthatch as the last bird, which came to say goodbye to SSL.

Ässön was interesting today, but we had to stand for being wet. We got the surprise of two white wagtails falling into the nets from the group which always wander over the bridge. Thrushes migration over the ringing site ignore the taping, but siskins were as pleased as always to here our taping. At 10:30 the dropping became into the perfect storm, which catch us during taking down nets.

Vallen was bussy and diverse today. There was a constant dropping of rain which made us ring for a while under the bird tower besides the pump house. We were pleased to be able to see Fieldfare from close and even more to catch a couple of Lesser redpolls.
