13th July 2017

Restricted net opening due to strong winds, but 12 opened at 0415 with 16 open by the time netting finished at 1100.

A poor day with just 8 new birds of 6 species, highlight being a Sävsångare (Sedge Warbler).

Migration watching for waders was equally poor, if not worse!!!

Janne leaves the island later today, so there will be five at the station tonight: Chris, Kay, Jon, Mikael & Niklas.
