27th May 2017

Most nets opened at 0345 and some an hour later as the wind decreased slightly. All nets closed at 1030 with just 8 new birds of 5 species caught.

We closed slightly earlier than the normal 1100 to allow time for us to attend the memorial service of Per Lind, a truly kind, thoughtful, humorous and gentle man, who we were privileged to know. A good friend to the Observatory and keen supporter of the improvements that we are all working towards. He will be missed on Landsort, but never forgotten. Our thoughts are with Eva and family.

There will be just three at the Observatory tonight: Chris, Kay and Stalin.
