We've just finished ringing on Flatey Island & we´re in Northen Iceland now, preparing to catch Whooper Swans, Golden Plover & Whimbrel.

Well the rings & gear have been packed away, data entered onto IPMR & a monthly submission file sent onto the BTO. Tomorrow I'm fleeing the country, heading back to Iceland for 4 weeks & having some familiar faces off this blog accompanying me! We're having a follow up visit to Flatey Island to ring pulli waders, seabirds & terns, as well as floating the boats & touring northern Iceland to roundup Whooper Swans!
Bless Bless (Good bye!)

Manchester had turned into Madchester on the roads this evening, with accidents on three of the major motorways (a lorry engulfed in flames just to the right of the reed bed above!). So both me & Steve were caught up in the traffic on the way home from work & were late for an evening of mist netting at the reed beds.
Even though we were late, we ploughed on & placed several nets at different locations throughout the site. Coupled with the lateness & a slight breeze whipping around the site, we didn’t do too badly and ended the evening session on 22 new birds, 4 recaps & another controlled Reed Warbler (X667744).
Hopefully, depending on the weather tomorrow – I’ll try and get into the reed bed to ring pulli Reed Warblers.
