All nets opened at 0345 and closed at 1100. A quieter morning but 24 new birds of 12 species including the first Kärrsångare (Marsh Warbler) of the season. Ebba arrived on site at 0700 to help for the morning.
A Vaktel (Common Quail) was observed at about 0500, initially by Kay and then by Chris. Walked from cover into the open under the last road net north and observed for about 1 minute as close as 3m before flying along the open net and over the cliffs into Södra lunden. Close to catching, but not quite!!!!
Afternoon to be spent visiting more nest boxes and possibly putting oil on one of the bench seats. Update. 4 Pilfink (Tree Sparrow) chicks ringed in two nests at SUDD to increase the day total to 28 of 13 species.
Linda, a new Member, leaves the Obs this afternoon leaving just three at the Obs tonight: Chris, Kay & Stalin.
