The day started with trial skylark plot surveys by DWE & JMY. 7 singing males were recorded over the two plots. Further discussion then took place with Jan Sondell to decide on the best methodology for the actual surveys beginning in Mid May. In the meantime we will be observing the skylarks to look for confirmation of nesting.

In the morning we searched for Marsh Harriers at Värstamaden. A couple of birds were flying around but no more indication of breeding. We heard the first Cuckoo of the year and some Wood warblers in the morning.
