5th August 2018

Nets opened at 0345 and closed at 1145 with 41 new birds caught of 13 species including the first Sparrowhawk (Sparvhök) of the year.

Caroline helped with the ringing, while Raul, Niklas and Mattias headed north for the morning. Janne & Bosse stayed at Bredmar all morning, between the Obs and the bunker at the back.

Problems with the computer have delayed some reporting, for which we apologise but hopefully resolved soon.

Mattias, Lena, Christine, Caroline and Janne left in the afternoon, with Marcus arriving to give six at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay, Bosse, Niklas, Raul and Marcus.
