20th May 2018

Nets opened at 0345, some closed at 1100 as the wind increased and the rest closed at 1145 after a guided talk.

Ebba joined us again for the ringing session but it was very quiet with just 9 new birds of 5 species caught.

Niklas headed up to the north for migration watching, with Mats & Lasse at SUDD until they returned around 0900 to help get the rubbish from the village and a little from the Observatory up to Norrhamn for the rubbish ferry.

At SUDD they spotted a Black Woodpecker (Spillkråka) coming to land from over the sea.

A very good guiding from around 1115 until 1230 with 22 adults and one child – excellent for a mid-May open guiding.

Niklas left on the afternoon ferry and Mats leaves later, with Håkan arriving (we think)

There will be four at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, Lasse and Håkan.
