Project: CES ringing session at Vallen. This morning has been a quite succesful session with 82 captures with the highlights of 21 Bearded tits, 3 Blue throats and 2 retraps of Great reed warbler. Yesterday evening Mike and me were looking for wader to ring this night but only 4 Plovers were seen and no big flocks, so we decided not to go. We will try again after the weekend.

Weather: Sunny calm weather.

Project: CES ringing at Ässon.

No students this morning to join us. Instead Jakob , a regular visitor here and involved in the Great Reed Warbler project, will spent the week with us at the station. Today was a very slow day. We catched 42 birds at the Ässon site. A Song Thrush and a Blackbird are noticeable along with some Goldcrests and Nuthatches. We hope for more birds tomorrow.
