Today we could open the nets in the morning! It was a much more chilly morning, we could feel from the temperature that winter is (slowly) coming.
But no evil white walkers for us, hopefully! Only few little birds!
Today's visitors were some redpolls, greenfinches, fewer bullfinches than yesterday, but also some siskins as a nice surprise ! We still improve our skills of distinguishing common from lesser redpolls and we enjoyed ageing and sexing the siskins because we have few of them in brittany.
There were still a smaller flock of fieldfares, one male sparowhawk and a rough legged buzzard around the island.
The tengmalm's owl try is still on for tonight!
