All nets opened at 0415 and closed at 1100 with 22 new birds of 12 species, with an increasing percentage of young birds being caught.
Re-visited 7 nest boxes to ring chicks but only one brood of four Blåmes (Blue Tit) ready to ring. Almost finished nest box work now with only 19 boxes to re-visit during the next week. So far it looks like being a less successful season for box-nesting birds.
Swifts still visiting the site to investigate the new nest boxes but so far no takers – it takes time and will be worth keeping on trying!!!
There will be four at the Obs overnight; Chris, Kay, Bosse and Liam, fresh from completing his studies which have kept him busy all season, so it will be good to see him!!!
