Revtangen BO September 2nd

Quite strong NW during the night gave way for a light NE in the morning. No playback at night, but we put up most nets (apart from the ones in the north) from 07.15-14.30. Netmeter hours approx. 2200. Playback on Meadow Pipit, Tree Pipit and Grey Wagtail. 

Ringed: White Wagtail 1, Tree Pipit 2, Meadow Pipit 58, Blackcap 1, Willow Warbler 2, Chaffinch 1, Brambling 1, Yellowhammer 2. Total = 68. Also a control of a 1cy Meadow Pipit not from Revtangen. 

Ringmerket: Linerle 1, trepiplerke 2, heipiplerke 58, munk 1, løvsanger 2, bokfink 1, bjørkefink 1, gulspurv 2. Total = 68. Også en kontroll av en heipiplerke med fremmed norsk ring.

Today we caught an unusually large Meadow Pipit. The birds was an adult, as shown by the complete set of adult feathers on all wing coverts. The wing measured 90,5 mm, by far the longest wing we've ever seen on a Meadow Pipit.
