17th June 2018

Nets opened at 0415 and closed at 1145 with a total of 14 new birds of 9 species, including three very recently fledged Marsh Tit (Entita).

Mikael and Mats headed off in the early morning to migration watch but reported that there were very few birds passing, so they went through the woods in the early morning.

A guided talk given to eight people from 1130 until 1245. A very enjoyable talk!!!

Some more nest boxes to checked this afternoon, but one failed Great Tit (Talgoxe) and two small Tree Sparrow (Pilfink) in the other. Just two more boxes to check later in the month, both are Pied Flycatcher (Svartvit flugsnappare).

Mats & Mikael left the island on the 1330 ferry to give just two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
