Few birds at Vallen, most of breeding species left already Kvismaren and northern migrators are not very common yet. Mike's gone back to Belgium after 4 weeks ringing with us, it's been a pleasure, see you soon Mike!

Project: Ringing at Vallen. After 2 days no ringing, because of the bad weather (too windy), this morning we tried again..althougt it was another very windy morning, we decided to set on at least 12 nets. The students from Klarälvdalens folkhögskola i stöllet enjoyed with us the ringing session but few birds...

Weather: Cold and cloudy with some rain early in the morning.

Project: CES ringing at Ässon.

Staff: Bruno and Mike

Yesterday we went to Ässen but once there it started to rain. For the safety of the birds we decided not to ring and to go back to the birding station. So we had time to work on data, to do some house chores and bring in all of the canoes.

This morning we tried again in Ässon. There was some rain but this time we gave it a try. All by all a very slow day with low numbers.
