All nets at BMAR opened at 0415 with some closed during the morning as the wind increased. All nets closed by 1145 with 20 new birds of 11 species including further Kärrsångare (Marsh Warbler) and Rörsångare (Reed Warbler). A Härmsångare (Icterine Warbler) was caught which had been ringed as a 2+cy in May 2012.
At SUDD Liam & Bosse opened all 11 nets at 0430 and closed at 1000 with five new birds of 4 species. All SUDD nets now removed and poles brought back to the Obs to be put up again in the early autumn.
Janne, having spent some time in the south gave good coverage to the north as far as Norrhamn, perhaps having an ice-cream?????
Bosse, Liam & Janne (who arrived on last nights boat) all leave the Obs at 1730 to give just Chris & Kay at the Obs overnight.
