Overnight rain continued until after 0900 with showers afterwards until later in the morning. This, combined with strong winds resulted in no netting today, the 3rd time in June no ringing has been possible.
A bit of a day off for Chris & Kay with Kalle, Janne and Bosse out and about to the north and south of the island. Among a range of observations made by them a few noteworthy ones were: 3 Skärfläcka (Avocet) migrating SW off the southern tip and a pair of Svarthakedopping (Horned Grebe) with two chicks in Norrhamn.
New member, Annika left the island on the afternoon ferry.
There will be 7 at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, Kalle, Marie, Janne, Bosse and Lena.
