6th April 2017

All nets opened at 0515 and closed at 1100. Very few birds on the island, with just 18 new birds of 7 species caught.

A Snipe flushed from the reed beds somehow managed to avoid the nets!!

A Great Crested Newt ‘rescued’ from the cellar and released in damp undergrowth.

Afternoon spent cleaning window frames and putting draught-excluders on all of the windows that have so far been ‘replaced’ last year. Should be less wind in the house now!!!!!

Just Chris & Kay at the Obs tonight
