16th April 2017

Most nets opened at 0445 with those in the reeds opened a little later due to the temperature being lower in the reeds. Some nets closed as the wind increased with all remaining nets closed at 1100. Another quiet (terrible!!!) day ringing with just 7 new birds of 6 species.

Janne (who arrived on the last boat yesterday), Bosse, Niklas & Bjorn were out early for migration watching and also had a very quiet day. The only records of note were one Jorduggla in off the sea and another flushed in the south. Altogether a disappointing day!!!

A guided talk for two people was given.

Bosse and Lena leave this evening, with Niklas and Bjorn deciding to stay another night; just in case it gets better!

Will be six at the Obs tonight: Chris, Kay, Pelle, Janne, Niklas & Bjorn.
