13th September 2017

Nets opened at 0515 and closed at 1300, having been left open until then for a booked guiding, which was then delayed until 1400.

Another quiet day with just 9 birds of 5 species.

Final window put into the lab this morning, so after the guiding at 1400 we will give the Lab a good clean and put the ringing area back together ready for some birds, perhaps???

Will also clean the dormitories and pingers room of dust from the work that has been done, ready for the weekend.

There will be two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
