28th May 2018

Poor days ringing again, with nets open from 0345 until 1100 with just 8 new birds of 5 species.

Afternoon was spent checking nest boxes between Obs and Våta Vägen. Quite a few occupied by Great Tit (Talgoxe) though no chicks ready to ring yet.

This morning at least two Swift (Tornseglare) left two different nest boxes, having spent the night in them. A total of four birds have been around the Obs on and off all day, with birds entering and leaving the same two boxes. Promising signs of breeding!!

There will be two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
