3rd September 2017

With no rain forecast until mid-morning, everyone was up at 0500 to open the nets – outside it started raining!

Janne & Bosse, who were going to run SUDD had the common sense to go back to bed until 0800 and, after a brief attempt at some migration watching, gave the day up as a wash out!!

At Bredmar 9 nets were opened at 0645 and closed 30 minutes later, re-opened at 0900 and closed at 0945 when more long-term rain arrived. A grand total of 1 bird!!!!!

Janne & Bosse will leave at some stage this afternoon giving just Chris, Kay & Sorcha overnight tonight.

Really heavy rain now and a terrible forecast for tomorrow and most of next week.

Strength: Moderate, 4-7 m/s increasing
