All nets opened at 0345 but some closed at 0630 as the wind increased and moved from NE to E, varying in strength, but mainly strong by the time netting finished at 1145.

20 new birds of 10 species, including a hybrid male Pied/Collared Flycatcher (Svartvit/Halsbandsflugsnappare), the first at the Observatory since 2008.

Bosse & Janne headed to SUDD for the morning, before going up to Jutvik/Saltmar in the early afternoon.

An open-guided talk from 1130 until 1230 attracted 9 people.

Bosse & Janne leave the island this afternoon to give just two at the Obs: Chris & Kay.
