8th April 2019

Persistent northerlies hampered our ringing efforts this morning and several nets were not opened, while others were closed early as the wind picked up. That said we still ringed 25 new birds in the more sheltered nets, including the first two Bullfinch of the year.

The only sightings of note were a Lesser Black-backed Gull and a Common Kestrel at the obs this afternoon.

There will be two at the obs tonight: Espen and Matt.
