4th June 2018

Nets opened at 0345 in almost calm conditions, with some closed as the wind increased and shifted towards north-east and then east. Just 9 new birds of 5 species, but including the first (3) Blackbird (Koltrast) fledglings of the year caught.

Afternoon spent checking a few more nest boxes, but none of the young ready to ring.

Currently there is a problem with the water supply on the island, an issue with E-coli. For the time being it will be important to check the current situation with water supply when booking to stay at the Obs.

Lasse leaves the island today to give two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
