Moderate to strong wind limited the number of nets open from 0430 until 1100 with a disappointing number of just 8 new birds of 6 species, but including a relatively late Icterine Warbler (Härmsångare).

Mats spent the morning migration watching but it was very quiet for birds. Mats has replaced the cooker hood and fan in the kitchen and brought out a lot of bird food.

This afternoon a Board meeting was held at the Obs.

David and Vanessa left the island this morning to give three at the Obs overnight: Chris, Kay & Mats.
