Onsdag den 20 augusti 2014

Staff: Ashwin, Carlos, Bruno, Helena and Annemarie

 

Weather: Cloudy morning with less than 20 degrees, only small wind. 

CES-Ringing: Today our catches were dominated by Barn Swallows. Carlos put up playback and it took only 5 min and the net was filled with nearly 40 Barn Swallows. Also, we attracted 3 Nuthatches with playback to the net. In the afternoon we set up some nets close to our Bird observatory in order to catch White Wagtails and Barn Swallows.
