Raul, Niklas and Jon off out this morning at first light to migration watch north. Very heavy fog but plenty of birds around, in particular thrushes. Goldcrest and Robin Approx, 800 Redwing, 200 Fieldfare, 1,100 Eider, 1 Snow Bunting and 29 Twite were the highlights. 3 Great Grey Shrike on the island and a singing Green Woodpecker in the far north.

Pelle, Chris & Kay up and out putting up the 30 nets at Bredmar. All nets up and repairs done to boardwalks in the reeds. Winter storms had moved the entire boardwalk at the end of the football pitch about 1m west, so quite a task to reposition it. All done and ready for tomorrow, with plenty of birds still on the island.

Six at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, Pelle, Raul, Niklas and Jon.
