Observations: The strong easterlies produced some raptors, quite a few of them came in off the sea and looked rather tired, some sat down to rest in the bird observatory garden. One sparrwohawk was trapped but two more manged to escape the mist-nets after initially getting caught. In total around 25 kestrel, 20 sparrowhawk, 1 common buzzard, 2 marsh harrier, 2 merlin, 2 peregrine. 

Asbjørn Folvik, Håvard Husebø and Alf Tore Mjøs. 4 visitors.
