19th April 2017

All nets opened at 0430 in a light NW wind, which gradually backed to SW during the morning and increased slightly to give 7 m/s when all nets were closed at 1100. Just 8 new birds again today, of 6 species. Included two new Sädesärla (White Wagtail) and the first Trädkrypare (Treecreeper) of the year.

Male Sparrowhawk hit the far north net and bounced out again.

New boardwalks ordered for SUDD and will hopefully be here by the weekend. This afternoon will be spent doing more maintenance and repairs around the Obs.

Just Chris & Kay overnight tonight.
