Another unusually busy morning for the ringing team at Banvallen this morning, though if this continues for much longer it will become a normal day! 99 new birds of 14 species were caught, with the highlight being a beautiful adult Lesser Whitethroat. The most abundant was unsurprisingly Sedge Warbler, with 36 individuals ringed.

In the morning we said goodbye to Marcelo, leaving just 4 of us, which will soon go down to 3!
