18 nets opened at 0415, with some closed at 1100 and the rest at 1145.

A total of 15 new birds of 10 species, the best of which was a Bändelkorsnäbb (Two-barred Crossbill), a second year female. Only the 6th of the species ever caught at the Obs, the other five all being in the autumn of 2013.

In the afternoon, Kay ringed a further 4 birds: Sädesärla (White Wagtail) chicks in Tore’s fishing shed.
