8th May 2018

Nets opened at 0345 in a light W wind that gradually backed to SE and increased slightly.

Nets closed at 1100 with 22 new birds of 11 species. Please note that the earlier entry of a Nightingale (Sydnäktergal) ringed was an error, which has now been corrected to Thrush Nightingale (Näktergal).

Two Thrush Nightingale (Näktergal) were re-trapped, one was ringed in May 2016 and one in June 2017. Also re-trapped was a Common Whitethroat (Törnsångare) ringed in August 2016.

Afternoon will be spent putting some protective oil on the benches outside.

There will be three at the Obs overnight; Chris, Kay & Chloe.
