Rainbow Monday

Personal: Teresa, Magnus, Helena, Daniel, Lena, Marianne

Weather: Almost all the weathers except snow!

Projects; Great Reed Warbler; Farmland Birds; Ringing setup, Marsh Harriers Flyways

Today the GRW Team checked out all the nests in Nyängen and Rysjön. All the ringed chicks until now are now fledged there and successfully grown. They could observe these Great Reed Warbler chicks fledged very near, which is a very pleasant observation!

Marianne checked out the flyways for both Åslasjön and Västra Fågelsjön. Åslasjön is more or less boiling with nesting activity, whereas Västra Fågelsjön has much less of it. Noteworthy for his courage is the Marsh Harrier male who attacked an Osprey at Åslasjön!

Happy Midsummer!!!

Weather; Sunny. Northerly breeze

Projects; Great Reed Warbler and Farmland Birds

 

The Farmland Bird Team looked hard but unsuccessfully this morning for the logger female around Ängfallet... Around Ängfallet??? She hides very well if they don't find her! But on finding nests are rather luckier and they managed to locate another Skylark nest on the ecoarea. Not an easy task we should say!
