22nd August 2017

Nets opened at 0430 and closed at 1100 with a moderate NE wind, at last, producing a first real fall of autumn migrants. After an average of just 20 birds a day since the 19th May we ended today with 143 new birds of 16 species. Among them were a Kärrsångare (Marsh Warbler) and a ‘hat-trick’ of flugsnappare!

All data on and trimming of Bredmar grass and net areas this afternoon.
