23rd May 2017

All nets opened at 0345 with a forecast for no rain. All nets closed at 0530 when a heavy rain shower came over the island!!! The non-existent rain stopped after 45 minutes so all nets opened again and closed at 1100.

A total of 30 new birds of 13 species. Among them was the first fledged Grönfink (Greenfinch) of the year.

A few problems with Fagel3 upgrades took a bit of time to resolve and the rest of the afternoon will be spent working on fixing some of the Observatories bikes.

Just Chris & Kay at the Obs overnight.
