11th June 2017

Thick fog and calm conditions when nets opened at 0345. Fog soon cleared to give largely sunny conditions with a slowly increasing wind up to 6-7 m/s by the time ringing finished at 1145.

A low number of birds caught with just 11 new birds of 9 species, mostly breeding birds now though two more Rörsångare (Reed Warbler). With the Talgoxe chicks ringed in the afternoon that makes 31 new birds of 10 species.

Guided talk given to four people.

Måns and his two youngsters left at 1330.

Afternoon to be spent checking more nest boxes and doing week-ending paperwork/ tidy up. Update. 20 Talgoxe (Great Tit) chicks ringed from four nest boxes before the Weather forecasters (guessers??) got it wrong and rain arrived!!!

There will be just two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
