Wren, Icterine Warbler and too much sunshine
As usual, we started the day with a ringing session at Kabeltromlen at sunrise where nets were open at 4:15 am. I was with Lauren and Chloe; we were later joined by Simon and the guests at the apartment, Søren and Karen Marie.
We had a slow morning session with 14 birds of 8 species. But throughout the ringing session we were kept busy by the mosquitoes at Kabeltromlen. The nets were closed by 9:30 because there were only few birds to ring. Sunny weather and almost no wind gives only few birds in the nets - but those we had were great.
