Heavy overnight rain continued until around 0800 and with more heavy periods of rain showers it was decided there would be no netting today. Chance to catch up with some jobs around the Obs in the morning, combined with trapping for Stenskvätta (Wheatear) with one caught.
Afternoon was spent visiting more nest boxes with 9 more Talgoxe (Great Tit) chicks and one adult female ringed to give 11 new birds of 2 species for the day. Found a Göktyta (Wryneck) incubating 4+ eggs in one of the boxes.
Just Chris & Kay at the Obs overnight.
