18th June 2018

Net opening delayed until 0600 due to very strong winds. Only 8 nets opened, with just four birds of four species caught.

Among them was the first recently fledged Lesser Whitethroat (Ärtsångare) of the year.

Afternoon spent working on the report on nest box monitoring and watching Sweden scrape a narrow victory in their opening game of the World Cup.

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