29th April 2017

17 nets opened at 0400 in a strong NE wind, but reduced to just 10 nets as the morning progressed and the wind increased to very strong.

Just 20 new birds of 7 species, with the first Sparvhök (Sparrowhawk) of the year caught.

Janne spent a very productive morning in the south migration watching, joined for the morning by Sven who, along with Lena are on Landsort for the weekend, travelling from Lapland. Jannes sightings will show on Artportalen later.

Pelle, Henrik and Karl arrived on the morning boat, with Bosse and Mats arriving on the last ferry, to give 8 at the Obs overnight:
Chris, Kay, Janne, Pelle, Henrik, Karl, Bosse and Mats.
