14th September 2017

Nets opened at 0515 and closed at 0700 when a rain shower arrived. This was the pattern of the morning, nets continually opened and closed due to rain until finally closing at 1100 when a series of heavier and longer showers arrived.

Despite restricted netting a better total than recently, with 36 new birds of 7 species including 4 Ärtsångare (Lesser Whitethroat) giving a year total of 456, two better than the previous best year (2016). Notable was the complete lack of caught, or calling, Lövsångare (Willow Warbler).

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