22nd July 2018

Restricted net opening at 0345 due to strong west wind which decreased a bit during the morning. Nets closed at 1145

8 hours, 8 birds, 8 species – ate lunch!!!

A guided talk given to two people from 1130 until 1230 – both friends of island residents. No summer visitors or day-trip visitors!

In the afternoon we replaced rotten boardwalks near the pond and in the south round – warm work, but hopefully the last ‘major’ repair jobs now done ready for the autumn season. One of the few plus-sides of this dry weather is that the vegetation is growing so slowly there is less trimming to do!!!

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