13th May 2018

All nets opened at 0345 and closed at 1145 after a public guiding.

A total of 23 new birds of 8 species continued the period of low numbers over the last couple of weeks. A second Collared Flycatcher (Halsbandsflugsnappare) of the season, this one a female was caught. Also trapped was the first Icterine Warbler (Härmsångare) of the year, this one having already been ringed on 10th July 2017.

Migration watching at SUDD was not rewarding. Yonas trying there until around 1000 with Bosse & Janne heading to the east and around Bredmar to see if there was anything around. The persistent E to NE winds are not helping!!!

A guided talk was given from 1130 until 1230 to 12 adults and two youngsters.

Most left the island on the 1330 ferry to give three at the OBs overnight; Chris, Kay & Chloe.
