Well, that’s it … all over for another year. Somewhere during this highly productive scan-fest we surpassed 20 000 flag and band sightings for Bohai, a fantastic achievement and a very complete and useful five-year data set. A few days later we reached 5000 sightings for the year, a new record for us. A few more days and we broke our annual colour-band record and when counting up number of individual birds were pleased to see another increase on previous years! It has been a highly successful trip!
