End of the season 2017

This year we had been ringing birds till 15th of October 13 o’clock (list of caught birds and photos of all caught species in the end). We wanted to remove the nets even earlier - 13-14th of October. But birds were migrating and getting into the nets – so we continue ringing as long as possible.
