Opening of nets delayed by 30 minutes as the snow that fell yesterday evening had partly frozen on the nets. Most nets opened at 0500 with the five in the reed beds opened later as the sun warmed this coldest part of the site. All nets closed at 1100.
Yet again, the birds largely failed to show with just 8 new of 6 species caught, including the seasons first Fieldfare.
Summary sheets on the information board in the hall updated to take account of the figures up to and including those from 2016. This afternoon notices will be placed in the village, at North Harbour and in the hostel about the series of public guided talks and lectures that are taking place. More notices will be placed in the leaflets available on the ferry and at other places.
Just Chris & Kay at the Obs tonight.
