14 nets opened at 0400 in a strong NW wind which decreased through the morning so by the time netting finished at 1115 all nets had been in operation.
A total of 42 new birds of 10 species was better than expected given the wind direction and strength.
A guided talk at 1100 given by Pelle was attended by three adults and two youngsters.
All others at the Obs went to the Lighthouse for a migration watch, with 2 Ringtrast (Ring Ouzel) being of note, though all of the records will appear in Artportalen later.
Pelle, Henrik & Karl leave the island on the last ferry to give five at the Obs tonight: Chris, Kay, Janne, Bosse and Mats.
Thanks to Mats for bringing a new drill and screws (and Voltaren for Chris’s knee!!) last night, Bosse for bringing bird food and Pelle for fresh fruit!!
