A weird morning at Banvallen, some net checks contained very few birds but one check pushed the day total up massively, with around 50 birds! A total of 116 new birds ringed of 18 species. The third Water Rail of the year was caught, another juvenile, as well as the first Goldcrest of the season, a possible sign that migration is slowly beginning…?
