20th April 2019

A excellent day’s birding for the visitors today with a Serin
(Gulhämpling) and a Penduline Tit (Pungmes) being the avian highlights, the
former flying south at Södra Udden and then lingering a while in the area, the latter
flew north this evening. Also notable were large counts of 21 Slavonian Grebes (Svarthakedopping)
and 20 Red-necked Grebes (Gråhakedopping) at the north end. A Camberwell Beauty butterfly (Sorgmantel)
went north through the reedbed as we were closing the nets at 11am.

An impressive 131 birds were caught this morning, including
94 Robin (Rödhake)!

There will be 13 at the obs
tonight: Matt, Espen, Anton, Mickael and the youth group from Birdlife Sverige.
