Daily Report – Friday, 5/13/16

Much busier day! A warbler wave arrived, esp. OVEN and COYE.
Skies started clouding over at 9:00 a.m., fog rolled in at 13:00. Andy and Jeff arrived on the JBH at 18:00 along with many volunteers. Within a half hour we had to close the nets due to rain. Since dinner time was pushed back to 19:00, we all got to enjoy a sit-down meal.

Cheers from Appledore: Peg, Bill, Andy and Jeff
