24th June 2018

Nets opened at 0415 in a light to moderate SW wind, which dropped to almost calm before moving NE and increasing. Nets closed at 1145 with 13 new birds of 8 species.

A most odd capture was a Firecrest (Brandkronad kungsfågel), trapped at the end of the session during a public guided talk. Three lucky members of the public!!! Only the 7th of the species ever caught here and the only one ever caught in June.

A public guided talk given to three people from 1130 until 1300.

Kalle & Marie left the island at 0930 to give just two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
