27th October 2017

A frustrating morning with a forecast of no rain, but a succession of showers that meant a stop-start morning of ringing that started at 0730 and finally finished at 1130 as the showers merged to become a prolonged period of rain.

A total of 107 new birds of 15 species/ sub-species.

There will be four or five at the Obs tonight: Chris, Kay, Lasse, Håkan and (possibly) Mats.
