18th September 2017

Nets opened at 0530 and closed at 1100 with 106 new birds of 12 species, including another Mindre flugsnappare (Red-breasted Flycatcher). Most birds caught in mist nets, but one Kungsfågel (Goldcrest) was found inside the Obs, having flown in through the open door.

Just before Lasse left we were treated to the view of a Fjällfråk (Rough-legged Buzzard) flying over the Obs before perching for a few minutes on the roof of Bernts house, giving great views and photo opportunities before if flew off N.

Lasse leaves the Obs this afternoon to give two overnight; Chris & Kay.
