28th April 2019

Another windy day with migrants continuing to move through. This evening a brief seawatch at Södra
Udden produced an Arctic Skua (Kustlabb), a Slavonian Grebe
(Svarthalsad Dopping) and a Red-throated Diver (Smålom) as well as small
numbers of Long-tailed Ducks (Alfågel) and scoters.

45 birds were ringed this morning and again some of the more
exposed nets remained closed due to the wind.

At 11:00 we ran a ringing demo for a youth group from WWF

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