A new day of ringing in the delta, and now it seems that most of the local waders have left the area. I saw just a few Purple Sandpipers (Fjæreplytt), and only one Dunlin(Myrsnipe), a week ago there were at least seventy Purple Sandpipers and thirty Dunlins here. Today I only managed to catch ten new Purple Sandpipers and one wich I had ringed a week ago, but I got a little bonus in an adult male Ringed Plover (Sandlo).
