Heavy rain overnight and until after 1000 in the morning produced over 30mm of rain and prevented any netting this morning.
A trip to the north of the island produced sightings of very few passerines – in fact the island seemed largely devoid of small birds!
Morning spent doing end of month paperwork, reports etc
There will be three at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay & Sorcha.
