It was a misty morning, but afterwards the sun gave us the warmth. We have caught the first Meadow pipit of the season. Another exiting event was Bearded reedlings in the flocks flying above the reeds in Vallen. We think that in total it might have been around hundred of them. A total of 76 birds consisting of 13 species were ringed.
