Opening of nets delayed until 0630 due to forecast heavy rain, which actually was only light. 23 nets opened at 0630 and the rest opened 1 hour later with all nets closed at 1100, with only occasional very light showers.
It was a quiet morning with just 8 new birds of 7 species, with the first Gransångare (Chiffchaff) young of the year caught.
There was an addition to last nights overnight numbers with a late decision to strengthen the squad by the addition of veteran striker, Janne, who arrived on the mid-afternoon boat.
Despite a strong “migration squad” the morning was quiet, with light northerly winds only slowly increasing and going to the NE – not great conditions. Hoping for better later in the day and tomorrow.
There will be 6 at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, Janne, Jon, Niklas and Mikael.
