10th April 2017

20 nets opened at 0500, with four of these closed during the morning as the wind increased, giving 16 nets to close at the end of ringing at 1100.

A total of 34 new birds of 10 species, with eight Rödvingetrast (Redwing) caught on one net round. This is equal to the number caught in the entire ringing period in 2016.

Repairs done to the steps into the cellar to prevent rain coming in from the lane.

Chris & Kay at the Obs overnight.
