50 bird day

The wind was stronger than the last couple of days and so this limited the number of nets that I could put up. Despite this, the flow of birds was steady throughout the morning, giving me a total of 42 new birds and 8 retraps. A good diversity of species too, with 12 different species ringed, including a new species for April - a Linnet. I had the pleasure of having the company of Benny and Hans for some of the morning - how Benny walks around in this temperature with open-toed sandals I have no idea - I'm still rugged up in all my winter gear. But I guess this just proves I'm Australian and not Danish!

The Linnet (Carduelis cannabina) ringed this morning
