Väder: Blå himmel och sol.

Projekt:

Fransmännen har studerat brun kärrhök och letat efter storspov i ett större område i Kvismaren.

Trastsångargänget har fångat och ringmärkt en ny trastsångarhane och funnit ett nytt bo.

Själv har jag observerat alla kända ortolansparvar, tre hanar och en hona, i vårt område.
