23rd June 2019

The surprise of the day was a Privet Hawkmoth (Ligustersvärmare) on one of the net
poles when we opened the nets first thing, which we moved to a spot where it
wouldn’t be disturbed. There are very few records of this gorgeous moth for the
island. 16 birds were ringed, including a
brood of four Great Tits (Talgoxe) from a nestbox.
