I suppose there may be an error of sorts, but have you considered the fact that solving the error might not gain you admittance into heaven? Look at the RHS of the model:
sensor2 + s(site, bs = "re")
... and think about the fact that you are "smoothing" a factor variable.

'data.frame': 2304 obs. of 5 variables:
$ sensor1 : num NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA ...
$ site : Factor w/ 9 levels "KRB","NP.FOR",..: 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 ...
$ NthSampling: int 7489 7490 7491 7492 7493 7494 7495 7496 7497 7498 ...
$ YDay : num 53 53 53 53 53 53 53 53 53 53 ...
$ sensor2 : num 0.567 0.566 0.567 0.567 0.569 ...
I'm having trouble making any sense of how that might work. It is, of course, possible to just do this:
xylemRohWeekXnnSite.fit <-
predict.gam(xylemRohWeekXnn.fit.bam, type="response", se=F)
That gives predictions for the original dataset.
But I think the error might be helpful in alerting one to the problems with the model.
