Another wet day

Today it was another day with bad weather. In the night, over the whole migration axis there has been rain. This resulted in almost no arrival of migrants to Blavand. That is also the reason why today was a rather slow day. It was funny that we caught a complete nest of greenfinches, although that is what I presume. Next to that, we also caught a juvenile linnet. We also caught another wood pigeon! I could feel that it gets easier to ring them, although this one was way more calm then the other one. This time Mikkel released it. After releasing it, it went preening in a nearby tree. A good sign that the ringing has almost no impact on the birds, when done correctly. We got also a nice recapture back, today we caught a common whitethroat back that was ringed in spring 2020. That are three returns to tropical Africa!

The rest of the weekend, the weather does not look very good. So Mikkel can go with an eased mind to a wedding.
