A humid but clear and calm start to the day. Very little to note from migration observations, everything was fairly still until after 5:30am. There were two recently fledged Härmsångare/icterine warbler in the Alders on the football field, calling their parents to feed them and a flock of Ladusvala/barn swallow were feeding around the Fågelstation late morning, also with an increase of juveniles.

A warm clear day with gentle breeze. A female Busksångare/Blyth’s reed warbler, that showed signs of having had a brood patch, was the fourth ringed this year and a juvenile Gök/cuckoo was the first ringed this year.

The moth trap was busy after a warm still night and the second Brunsprötad skymningssvärmare/bedstraw hawkmoth of the week was seen.
