Kvismare fågelstation, Sweden - Day 19

Juvenile Lesser Whitethroat
Juvenile male Pied Flycatcher (reasonably far along with post-juvenile moult)

This morning we ventured to Ässön to try and catch some migrants. It was a very slow start, with the only things keeping us awake were passing over Common Terns with several Arctic mixed in. There also appeared to be a decent Black-headed Gull passage.
At 06.30, the migrants 'switched on' and 41 new birds were soon caught.

Totals for the morning:
Reed Warbler - 8
Sedge Warbler - 9
Willow Warbler - 3
Blackcap - 1
Garden Warbler - 1
Lesser Whitethroat - 1
Pied Flycatcher - 1
Blue Tit - 1
White Wagtail - 5
Robin - 1
Reed Bunting - 8

Hope for the weather to improve slightly as it's now raining, so I can add to today's blog post.
