A brisk south-westerly limited the number of nets opened, but this dropped throughout the morning and it was very calm by early afternoon. 72 birds were ringed. An Arctic Redpoll (Snösiska) was with a flock of Redpolls at Fågelstationen this morning. A Black Redstart (Svart rödstjärt) was in the village, a Peregrine Falcon (Pilgrimsfalk) flew south and a late Swallow (Ladusvala) flew north. A Water Rail (Vattenrall) was heard at Bredmar this evening.
