23rd April 2017

All nets opened at 0415 and closed at 1100, with the wind decreasing through the morning and it becoming more sunny. Temperature rose from 2 degrees at 0415 to 5 by 1100.

A total of 20 new birds of 8 species was welcome after the poor results of yesterday. Bosse & Mats went to the south, with their sightings appearing on Artportalan (the National Swedish recording database).

Kay flushed a Morkulla (Woodcock) from near the juniper nets at first light.

Think Mats might be trying to repair the roof this afternoon?

Not a lot else planned, but Kay & I might replace boardwalks at east SUDD, see how the energy levels are after lunch.

Janne arrived on the first ferry, with Bosse and Mats leaving at some stage this afternoon.

There will be three at the Obs tonight; Chris, Kay & Janne.
