Nets opened at 0345 and closed at 1100 with 18 new birds of 10 species.

Migration watching took place at SUDD and, despite being a very quiet day for movement a Short-toed Lark (Korttålärka) was found. Despite extensive searching of the area by a number of birders it was not re-located.

Emma and family left on the 0930 ferry.
