Weather: Cloudy and rainy with a lot of long showers.

The previous night we did the night census. As dusk is very late, we also finished the census very late. Actually the Yellowhammers were singing when we came back home, so it was morning for the Yellowhammers already. Therefore, we woke up very late to recover energy.
