All nets opened at 0445 with a light south-west wind. Wind backed to south and then south-east with rain arriving at 0900 when all nets closed. Rain now forecast for the rest of the day.
Another very quiet day with hardly any birds in the area and just 10 new birds caught of 5 species.
Rest of the day will be spent reviewing old data and making further progress on workplans for the future.
Just Chris & Kay at the Obs overnight.
