High expectations

Still very windy first thing but it quickly eased off and I could open nets by 06:00; after I had cleared all the debris out of the nets and net rides, 12 new birds were caught in a few hours which included 2 Common Rosefinches, an Icterine Warbler, a Garden Warbler, a Blackcap, 2 Sand Martins and Goldfinch.

The baby Great Tits have survived the gales and found the nets!
There were bits and pieces seen out at the tip through the day with a Caspian Tern north, a Bee-eater also north (but very politely returned south when I got out there!) and a couple of Honey Buzzards, Marsh Harriers and Common Buzzards floating around.   The Common Buzzards included the dark local bird which frequently and sometimes annoyingly hovers like a Rough-leg, I've never seen this behaviour in the UK but apparently its quite regular here in Denmark.
Male and female Red-backed Shrikes and at least 5 Marsh Warblers were my reward for a walk north up the coast in the afternoon.
After this big easterly blow of the last few days its predicted to be pretty calm with the wind in the W or NW over the next few days - perfect for something awesome!   We'll see!
