After months of just talking, a bit of planning and a lot of blog reading, we have colour ringed Norway’s first coot!
A001 after three cold hours of waiting.
As most other colour ringing projects in Norway this coots, and moorhens, are reportable on ringmerking.no
With my limited experience this guys are not as easy to age as it seems from literature.
As always, we need some more samples to get our eyes in!
Big thanks to Kane for everything along the way!
Evenings are getting longer, the first migrating greylag geese are back at Østensjøvannet, spring is here!
