Great ringing weather

It has definitely been four seasons in one day today; early this morning it was overcast and cold, turning into warm and sunny weather later in the morning, and just as I write this now it has started to hail. The main thing is that it was great weather for ringing this morning with the wind finally subsiding for the first day in a while, and so I opened all the nets.

Sunny Spring at Gedser Fuglestation
It was a slow and steady Spring day, with 31 new birds ringed and 23 retraps caught. One Bullfinch was ringed, which is something different for the past three weeks, but other than that the composition of the catch was much the same as the past couple of days with 11 species ringed.

The Bullfinch ringed today
