I would like to say a big thank you to the GRW team for all the moments we spent together, they were always great, tireless and happy.

Weather: Windy in the morning.
Projects: Ringing and GRW.
Despite the weather, today it has been a very productive day.

In the morning we could not ring because of the wind, but we took advantage of that and we cut all the reeds again in Vallen and Banvallen. After that, we started to set up the third ringing station (Ässön). I hope we can have it ready in the next days.
