4th May 2017

22 nets opened at 0345, with some opened a bit later on, but only for a short while as the wind continued to increase.

Only 22 new birds of 7 species, 50% of the Gransångare (Chiffchaff) and our first Svartvit flugsnappare (Pied Flycatcher) of the year, a 2cy male.

Two guided talks given, one at 1100 to 13 people and one at 1230 to 23, with nets closed at 1330. Made it a very long day but both talks were well received and enjoyed by everyone.

Just Chris & Kay at the Obs overnight.
