24 nets opened at 0600 and continued until 1145 when rain arrived. Pleasing to get the first migrant Robin (Rödhake) and Goldcrest (Kungsfågel). Warmer this morning, starting at +2 and rising to +4 by the time netting finished.
A mist descended a couple of hours before the rain arrived, bringing a small fall of migrants, notably a flock of Chaffinch (Bofink), with one Brambling (Bergfink) that dropped down to feed along the road by the Obs.
The first Common Frog of the year seen, sitting in the lab!!!
There will be two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
