On site at 6:05 AM. First activity was some calling and one display in distance @ 6:12-6:15 AM; then more calls and the ascending whistle heard several times and another display. None of this is saved as too poor. This recording starts with the ascending whistle, then a display. Quality: 3 (~ 2 on the display). Level: +2.
Then some vocalizations that apparently have to do with territorial conflict. Quality: 3. Level: +2.
During past 3-4 days weather has been very rainy, quite cold and windy, too. Yesterday was a beautifully clear day, however. This AM, 6:20, much warmer, no wind, cloudy. On site 6:35. Only sound from argyrotis up to 6:20 was one flight scream.
Quality: 3, ~2, 3. Level: +2.
