Wrong winds

Today (8th August) the wind blew strongly and from the wrong direction, bringing rain and no birds.

We were unable to fulfill standardised for the first time in a long while and instead opted to just open the nets for a short period (in marginal conditions) during a visit from a local school group.

We managed to catch just 6 birds.

1 Marsh Warbler
1 Redtart
1 Icterine Warbler
1 Willow Warbler
1 Pied Flycatcher
1 Lesser Whitethroat

Heidi left temporarily and Thorkild arrived from Mysore, India. In the evening, a meeting was held at the station.

Highlights today were Green Sandpiper, 100 Crossbill, 100+ Swift, Whimbrel and Curlew.
