10th May 2018

Nets opened at 0345 and closed at 1100. Another quiet day with just 10 new birds of 7 species. Among them were the first Tree Pipit (Trädpiplärka) and first Greenish Warbler (Lundsångare) of the year, this latter bird being the earliest ever caught here by 13 days. A very unusual year to catch one of these before the first Garden Warbler (Trädgardssångare) or Wood Warbler (Grönsångare).

There will be nine at the Obs overnight; Chris, Kay, Chloe, Emma (party of 4) and Jonas with his son.
