A foxy day (18 March 2009)

The weather was clear and -3 degrees in the morning and there were very few birds. It was around 8 degrees at the noon and a breeze had just started and became a little cloudy. In the evening it was around 7 degrees. We saw the fox all day and even witnessed him sneaking, getting closer and hunting a ruddy shelduck. Thank God he has not touched our trapped birds on the nets yet, but yet!

We ringed 18 birds out of 5 species and most of them were trapped in the afternoon. We had a surprise we get back home because the water tank of the toilet was leaking water. We fixed and dried the floor for an hour. Thank God the water did not leak in the bedrooms.

Today's birds are:
Reed Bunting
