Went to Ässön again today for some ringing. When I put up the nets the thermometer were only showing 0 degrees, one of the coldest mornings so far this autumn.
Were quite a lot of passerines migrating today, but due to very good weather they were flying quite high.
In five hours I caught a total of 27 birds of 8 different species.
Nicest bird of the day were a really late Reed Warbler with fat 7. This is a new phenology record for the area of Närke.
Other nice species were Long-tailed Tit and Lesser Redpoll.
List of birds caught:
Siskin - 6
Long-tailed Tit - 2
Lesser Redpoll - 1
Reed Warbler - 1
Wren - 6
Brambling - 1
Blue Tit - 3
Great Tit - 7
