Nets opened at 0415 in a light SW wind that soon backed to East and increased to moderate, occasionally strong. Nets closed at 1100 with 17 new birds of 10 species.

Included in the captures was the fifth Greenish Warbler (Lundsångare) of the year, equalling the best previous year for the species (1988). This bird had a brood patch that was re-growing, indicating that it might have bred, or attempted to breed on the island.

There will be four at the Obs overnight; Chris, Kay, Mikael and Niklas.
