Revtangen BO August 6th - first wader catch

No trapping with mist nets today, too windy and the forecast promised some rain in the morning. But waders are arriving in numbers since the day before yesterday, and still increasing today in SE wind with some showers. So we put together the wader trapping gear and tried 4 walk-in traps in the afternoon from around 15-20 hours. The catch was decent for such a small effort, with 4 red knot (2 adults, 2 juveniles), 1 adult sanderling, 1 juvenile little stint, 1 starling and 59 dunlin (6 adults, 53 juveniles). Total = 66. 

Ringmerket: Polarsnipe 4, dvergsnipe 1, sandløper 1, myrsnipe 59, stær 1. Total = 66.

Adult red knot. Polarsnipe (2K+). 
Reveparken: Goshawk 1 cy, rook 8.
Revtangen: 500+ waders, mostly dunlins but smaller numbers of red knot, sanderling, turnstone, ruff, little stint, redshank and common ringed plover. Also 1 juv. spotted redshank, 1 adult curlew sandpiper, 1 adult grey plover, 1 juvenile black-tailed godwit (ssp. islandica) and a few whimbrel and greenshank. 2 Great skuas were close over the beach, 2 sandwich terns migrated south and a 2cy peregrine harassed the waders.
