Rain at first light and a strong to very strong wind delayed opening of a limited number of nets until 0730, with nets closed at 1200.

A total of 70 new birds of 11 species/ sub-species was more than expected given the weather.

Johan leaves the island today, giving just two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
