Although the birds weren't around in the same abundance of yesterday, there was a fair bit of diversity. Lots of blackbirds (solsort) this morning though, we had five in a single net at one point, and we also caught quite a few treecreepers (træløber). We also caught small numbers of bluetits (blåmejse), great tits (musvit), siskin (grønsisken) and redwings (vindrossel).
The highlight of the morning was bird with a ring from Stockholm, sporting the colours of the Swedish flag.

There was a surprising catch late this afternoon, Anders walked in with a fieldfare (sjegger)! A first for the season (as far as I'm aware!).
The owl nets are up again tonight. Here's hoping we catch some more long-eareds or maybe something a bit different!
