Nets were open at 4am, it was still windy and a bit cloudy. The sky cleared up and the wind
changed direction through the morning. It was exactly the same number of birds ringed as yesterday
but with a bit more diversity. A surprise came straight to the house around 10 when a barn swallow
entered the living room! I closed the door and caught it easely. Why do we use nets for? Hahaha.
Except for this beautifull male, the species were more or less the same as yesterday: 6
willow warblers, 2 chiffchaffs, 1 whitethroat, 1 pied flycatcher, 1 common redpoll and 1 lesser
redpoll have been ringed today. The total number of birds ringed this spring is now 2412.
This is it! It was my last day in Store færder! I want to thank the board of the ringing
station for their warmth welcome and their kindness through the 6 weeks. I will never forget
the island and I really might come back (but for a shorter stay!).
