20th June 2017

Strong winds prevented any nets being opened today. Kay took this opportunity to go shopping for food and things for the Obs while Chris cleaned the kitchen and bathroom ready for the weekend visitors and then some time continuing to sort through the last 30 years of data – proving to be a bigger job than anticipated and starting to suspect that there is little by way of analysis that can be done, but we’ll see.

Up to ten Tornseglare (Swift) investigating the nest boxes, displaying and calling. All promising signs, but none seen to land yet.

There will be just Chris & Kay at the Obs tonight.
