Revtangen BO February 21st - the first migrants

The nets were open from around 10-17, but trapping was slow and only 5 tree sparrows were new birds. Also 15 controls (robin, blue tit, great tit, tree sparrow). February has been warmer than usual, and spring is already here, it seems. Small flocks of skylarks were heading north over the station today, a flock of 35 lapwings were nearby at Ergavatnet and a male shelduck had arrived at Revtangen. The first of the wild flowers, coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara), were already in bloom in the sanddunes at Revtangen.
