It was raining this early morning and nets were open at 7.45am. There were still some small
showers through the day, but it was still possible to keep nets open. Hans Erik and Terje came to
spend the morning on the island and arrived after a round or two.
I decided to close at 4pm, after some empty rounds. It was another quiet day, even if it was much
better than yesterday. 13 birds have been ringed today and the highlight was definitely a stunning
red-backed shrike caught in the morning. Otherwise, 7 willow warblers, 3 chiffchaffs (one singing
next to the house!), 1 whitethroat and 1 redpoll were ringed today.
Tomorrow, it will also be time for me to migrate and leave the island! I’ll do my best forthe last
morning of ringing on Store Færder, a little paradise island.
