A blustery day prevented any ringing activity. Storspov/curlew were heard but not seen going south and four gluttsnäppa/greenshank were feeding in Saltmar during the afternoon. In Bredmar five vandrande ängstrollslända/red-veined darter were basking on the rocks and a pair were in tandem over the water. Also in Bredmar there were two Kejsartrollslända/Emperor dragonfly patrolling the edge of the reedbed and a female brun mosaikslända/brown hawker was egg laying.
