9th September 2019

Rain overnight gave way to a foggy morning with very light easterlies. It was another good day of migration and in the afternoon as the fog began to lift 90 Wheatear (Stenskvätta) were counted along the coast to the south of the obs. At Södra Udden the first Yellow-browed Warbler (Tajgasångare) of the autumn, and one of the first seen in Sweden this autumn was seen in a valley to the south of the lighouse for about 10 minutes. A Slavonian Grebe (Svarthakedopping) was off Jutvik. 30 birds were ringed including a Sparrowhawk (Sparvhök) and a Sedge Warbler (Sävsångare), as well as four Wheatear (Stenskvätta), the first caught since spring.
