Where do they go? Map of worldwide recoveries of birds from Lake Kvismaren.

map from birdringing.bioatlas.se

Every year, thousands of birds are ringed at Lake Kvismare Bird Observatory. A small number of these birds are found in other places in Sweden and abroad. Some of the recoveries have been checked by ringers, while others might have been found after crashing into a window or being sought by a cat. Now, all recoveries are presented on an interactive map, which gives some answers as to where the birds from Lake Kvismaren end up.

The map with recoveries of birds ringed by Lake Kvismare Bird Observatory is available at birdringing.bioatlas.se.

Weather: Cloudy and very calm.

Projects: Bird ringing Crane monitoring.

The last week we had very good days ringing, compared with the previous ones. Average of 80 birds per day. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for today. The weather was so calm that we decided to trap some migrants in Ässön, but in the end, we had one of the poorest days with only 21 birds during the whole morning.

Weather: It has been raining during the whole day.

Projects: Data entry & Crane monitoring.

Today we could not do much, as it has been raining the whole day. We went shopping, repaired some nets and did data entry. The GRW team has left this morning, so now only me FBP and the crane team are here. I would like to say a big thank you to the GRW team for all the moments we spent together, they were always great, tireless and happy.
