Måndag den 16 september 2013

For the last week the weather forecast has showed rain on Monday morning – today. This would normally be a bad thing, however this has been a summer of unusually good weather and as a result we have completely forgotten what it is like to stay in bed past sunrise. We have only missed 3 days of ringing since the beginning of July! So, when checking the forecast before going to bed, we were a little disappointed to see that all had changed, the rain would pass overnight and the morning will be fine and dry, albeit a little windy. So once again, beep-beep-beep goes the alarm this morning!

We awoke at 5am to find it raining heavily so the ringing was postponed for a short while until we were confident that the bad weather had passed. By 6 the skies were clear and it was business as usual. The first net round was busy but after that it was just a few birds during each check.

Personnel; MKS, TMJ, EKA, JCN, 2x ’Crane Girls’

Weather; Rain early morning but clearing soon and bright and sunny for the rest of the day.

Weather; Moderate ENE wind becoming light this evening

As the forecast suggested it was pretty windy this morning – too windy for any of the standard ringing sites. Still, we got up at the usual time and headed to Oby Kulle, our ‘plan B’ for windy days. Unfortunately, the wind was in the wrong direction and came right through a small gap in the trees. Our usually nice and calm little ringing area was windy!
