DWE, JMY, EKP and MPN set the alarms very early in order to attempt a catch on a pair of unringed Ortolan Buntings at Sörösletten. Despite some scepticism as to the probability of success, ‘Team Ortolan’ succeeded in capturing 2 different males who now have colour rings V5-92 and H5-89. Also caught were a Yellowhammar, White Wagtail, Chaffinch and Wheatear.
