MBR, DHT and TMJ were out in three different locations for the Great Reed Warbler. MBR was in Nyangen trying to catch a ringed individual but without success.

Early in the morning, before the rain started, MBL and TMJ went out to look for Great reed warblers and their nests which they recently started to build. They were happy to find a nest in Sörbysjön.
