After ringing the first Hobby (Lärkfalk) since 2007 yesterday, the last thing we were expecting was another one today, but that is exactly what we got – two Hobbies in two days! Among the other 27 birds ringed were the first Bluethroat (Blåhake), Wheatear (Stenskvätta), Icterine Warbler (Härmsångare) and Garden Warbler (Trädgårdssångare) of the year. Two Knot (Kustsnäppa) migrated north past Södra Udden this morning, as did seven Yellow Wagtail (Gulärla). A Red-backed Shrike (Törnskata) was at Fårhagen.
