This autumn I've decided to ring a little bit during the weekends at Ässön, a small island at lake Hjälmaren.
Today I did my first visit. There was quite a lot of migrating passerines, but not so much in the nets. I was by my self today so I only put up four nets and caught around 40 birds. Mostly Goldcrests, but also a few Chiffchaff, Long-tailed tit, Blue tit, Robins and Willow tit. The last one was actually a new ringing tick for me, they aren't that common outside the forests.
The weather actually looks better for tomorrow morning, but I feel that I need to sleep so there will be no more ringing this weekend (if I don't change my mind tonight=).
But next weekend I will try again, and hopefully I will get help from another ringer then.
