(6:am-13:00).Clear,some wind later towards mid-day.
My alarm this morning went off at 4:45am and after a quick bite to eat I set off for Sandwich.I pulled up outside the obs at 6:00, just in time for the first net round.
Three of us processed probably getting on for one hundred  birds,of which three quarters must have been Blackcaps,the remaining birds were mostly Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers.

The above juvenile Green Woodpecker was caught in the Haven bushes towards the end of the session,where also a Spotted flycatcher had been present for most of the morning,successfully evading the net.
