28th July 2017

All nets opened at 0345 in overcast and calm conditions with a very light wind from NE which gradually moved to the S through the morning. All nets closed at 1100.

a total of 23 new birds of 15 species including a Rörsångare (Reed Warbler). Yet another poor day for migration watching for Kalle who is trying his best but being frustrated by the wind direction.

Marie has put a 2nd coat of oil on the two main tables and benches, including soaking the feet in oil to help prolong their life.

There will be six at the Obs tonight: Chris, Kay, Kalle, Marie, Janne and Mikael.
