Nets up!

Blue skies as the sun rises over Gedser Fuglestation
After four days of bad weather, conditions finally improved enough this morning for me to be able to put nets up! It ended up being a beautiful sunny day, but there was a light wind which probably reduced the catch. The result was a steady day of 26 birds, including 18 new birds and 8 retraps. Dunnocks featured heavily (mostly 2nd calendar year birds) with ten birds ringed, and one new Firecrest was ringed. No Goldcrests seen or heard today.
