3rd June 2017

All nets opened at 0345, with four closed at 0930 when a rain shower arrived and the rest closed at 1100.

A very quiet day with just 8 new birds of 7 species, including the 2nd Kärrsångare (Marsh Warbler) of the year.

Migration watching proved to be slow in both the north and the south, with people coming back to the Obs mid-morning. More coverage of the island is taking place this afternoon, so there will be an update if anything of note is seen. At the moment the best birds seem to have been an immature Tretåig Mås (Kittiwake) a Lärkfalk (Hobby) in the south (which may have been the same bird that came low over the Obs earlier in the day) and an Enkelbeckasin (Common Snipe) that has been displaying over Bredmar all morning.

There will be eight at the Obs overnight; Chris, Kay, Bosse, Lena, Janne, Rasmus, Mikaela and Lasse.
