This morning, Marianne and Helena were keeping watching to the Ortolan nesting in Ängfallet. The pair whose chicks were ringed one week ago are still feeding and now the chicks seem to have fledged from the nest. A second Ortolan pair is now beginning to feed also, which is very good news!

The Farmland Birds's team found one Skylark nest, after intens observation of 1 feeding pair. Nevertheless, the chicks were already fledge so they had to look for the youngsters between the crops. Too late. None could be found.

Well, not too bad. On their way back home, they found another pair feeding. Would they be able to find the nest tomorrow?
