All nets opened at 0345 and closed at 1100. The start of the morning had very light winds, almost calm, increasing as the morning progressed to about 6m/s by 1100, remaining overcast all morning.

A total of 29 new birds of 14 species with 7 Rörsångare (Reed Warbler) being noteworthy along with our 8th Mindre Flugsnappare (Red-breasted Flycatcher) of spring. A late Rödvingetrast (Redwing) was also of note.

Raining this afternoon, so no need to check nest boxes, as most birds seem a bit late in breeding this year.

Just Chris & Kay at the Obs overnight.
