1st May 2017

All nets opened at 0400 and closed at 1200 in very light winds from the south. 79 new birds of 11 species, with 64 of these being Robin, but the first Trädpiplärka (Tree Pipit) of the year caught also.

Janne & Bosse went to the north in the morning and heard Göktyta. Mats was in the south all morning and between them around 1500 Svärta were observed. All their records will appear on Artportalen but they include a Ladusvala (Barn Swallow) observed heading north.

Mats, Bosse & (maybe) Janne leaving the island on the last ferry today, giving 2 or 3 on the Obs tonight; Chris, Kay & (maybe!!) Janne.
