Calmer condition today allowed for full netting, though the birds were still thin on the ground. A control linnet and a second juvenile Black Redstart were welcome additions amongst the juvenile Greenfinches, Chaffinches and Blackcap. A juvenile Chiffchaff lingered and a Fulmar passed through right above the Obs. The smallest Ringed Plover Chick was again not located and with a lack of alarm calls from the adults is presumed lost. The moth traps were a bit busier due to the calmer night, though the main visitors were 100+ Browntails.
