Revtangen BO January 8th

Another calm day, 3-4 degrees and cloudy. Very little wind. Nets open 08.30-18, netmeter hours 2500. Playback on Fieldfare all day and (in the morning only) Redwing. 

Ringed: LONG-EARED OWL 1, Winter Wren 1, European Robin 1, Common Blackbird 1, Redwing 8, Fieldfare 22, Common Starling 1, Tree Sparrow 7, House Sparrow 1 and Greenfinch 1. Total = 44. Also 8 controls. 

A 2cy Long-eared Owl was the surprise catch of the day. We've noticed that the thrushes settle quite late when it's almost dark, and this is a good time to catch them. An owl is always a possible bonus after dark but this species is less than annual at Revtangen BO.
