All nets opened at 0400 and closed at 1100 with 24 new birds of 6 species caught. A pleasing total of 12 Ärtsångare (Lesser Whitethroat) and 5 Lövsångare (Willow Warbler) gave some indication of a movement of birds.

Peter left the island this morning to give four at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, David and Maya.
