30th July 2017

Restricted to 16 nets opened at 0345 due to strong winds, with some more opened as the morning progressed. Some closed at 1100 and the rest closed at 1145.

Only 14 new birds of 8 species caught.

A public guiding given to 5 adults and 2 youngsters from 1130 until 1245.

Migration watching was quiet for Kalle, Janne & Mikael, though not sure of what was seen as they left the island before I chatted to them about anything of interest though a Sandlöpare (sanderling) was mentioned as being the best bird.

Marie put another coat of paint on the wall and boarding in the hall before she & Kalle left on the 0930 ferry, with Janne & Mikael leaving at 1330.

Another guiding to 4 people will be given at around 1600 this afternoon – another short working day!!!!

There will be just Chris & Kay at the Obs tonight.
