27th July 2017

25 nets opened at 0345, with some opened later as the wind changed. All nets closed at 1100 with 34 new birds of 14 species. Among them were the first young Grå flugsnappare (Spotted Flycatcher) and Svartvit flugsnappare (Pied Flycatcher) of the year.

Migration watching remained poor with Kalle spending an un-rewarding period watching for wader passage before heading off through the woods for an equally quiet time!!!

Trimming can be put off no longer, so that is the job for the afternoon along with more progress on preparing for next weeks talk to island residents.

There will be four at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, Kalle & Marie.
