12th May 2017

All nets opened at 0345 and closed at 1100. A quiet start to the morning, but improved by the time 0600 arrived. Caught the first Mindre flugsnappare (Red-breasted Flycatcher) of the season, a full adult male.

Catch was dominated by Lövsangare and Gransångare (Willow Warbler & Chiffchaff). Finished with 82 new birds of 8 species, plus an Ärtsångare (Lesser Whitethroat) that was already ringed from within Sweden.

Will update on interesting sightings a bit later.

Completed putting up all the nets at SUDD. That’s all nets up there and all boardwalks repaired/replaced.

Will be 6 at the Obs tonight; Chris, Kay, Janne, Lasse, Rasmus and Jakob.
