13th April 2015

Staff: Daniel Wade (DW) & Daniel Hedenbo (DH)

Weather: Strong winds, mostly sunny.

Projects: Hooded Crow and Raven Project;

The first day of the 2015 season started on a nest finding mission to continue with the monitoring of Kvismarens corvid population which occurs every 5 years. A 6 hour trek produced many possible nesting sites and 1 confirmed nest with a lot more ground to cover in the following days.

Red breasted Goose (Branta ruficolis) was present again as I gather it has been since March and was seen by both DW and DH this evening on the fields east of Rysjön. A Lesser White Fronted Goose (Anser erythropus) was also reported this morning though neither of us could locate it this evening; we shall try again tomorrow.
