4th June 2017

All nets at Bredmar opened at 0345, 13 closed at 1100 and the last 17 closed at 1145, giving 23 new birds of 14 species, including 3 Kärrsångare (Marsh Warbler) and 4 Rörsångare (Reed Warbler).

No public guided talk today.

Rasmus, Bosse and Janne ran the nets at SUDD, all 11 opened at 0515 and closesd at 1000 with 13 new birds of 5 species, an overall catch of 36 birds of 16 species.

At Bredmar a Fiskmås (Common Gull) was trapped. It was first ringed on 15th June 2008 (as a 3+) and re-trapped on 9th July 2010, making it at least 12 years old. First Hämpling (Linnet) young of the year ringed.

An Ägretthäger (Great Egret) was seen from SUDD flying south past the island off the west coast.

The male Enkelbeckasin (Common Snipe) was still displaying at Bredmar and reacted strongly to another bird that rose from cover, flying parallel to it and repeatedly flying on its side, but no success – maybe next time!!

End of week summaries to do this afternoon.

Rasmus and Mikaela left at 1330 and Bosse and Lena (possibly also Janne) leave at 1730 to give either 3 or 4 at the Obs tonight: Chris, Kay, Lasse and possibly Janne.
