5th November 2017

Very strong south winds prevented most nets being opened due to their exposed position, though three were opened at 0630 and closed at 1030 when showers of light rain arrived.

A total of 24 new birds, all Gråsiska (Redpoll).

Janne & Mats headed to the south, though it seems not a lot was seen moving past the island.

Mats, Lasse and Janne all leave the island, the last time we will see them prior to our departure next Sunday. Many memories and shared birding experiences!!!

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