A total of 292 new birds of just two species caught with a very large number of Gråsiska (Redpoll) present on the island. An update of birds seen will be included later in the day.
With netting finished as the wind increased to gale force and all data on Fågel3 Chris & Kay will be cleaning more nest boxes in the woods later, while Lasse, Måns and Johan struggle with the conditions to see what birds are around.
There will be 5 adults and 4 children at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, Lasse, Måns and Johan.
