Same Same

fredag 30. september 2016
af Simon Davies

Same same again with strong winds and clouds coming and going but with occasional heavy showers scudding through in the afternoon; the ringing was even quieter with only 8 new birds caught including a young male Sparrowhawk.   There was more activity overhead though with several each of Tree Pipit and Grey Wagtail with decent flocks of Chaffinch, Brambling, Siskin, White Wagtails and Meadow Pipits passing over the garden.

Today's less than meagre totals - 1 Sparrowhawk / Spurvehoeg;  3 Wren / Gaerdesmutte;  1 Robin / Roedhals;  1 Song Thrush / Sangdrossel;  1 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge;  1 Chaffinch / Bogfinke

                I headed off mid-morning for a walk up the coast but I failed to find any eastern vagrants but there were good flocks of Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests in the forest which contained pretty much nothing else; there was more passing south along the coast though with big flocks of Siskins the main feature (3,000 were counted at the point through the day) along with a few Crossbill flocks amongst smaller numbers of other Finches and Pipits.   An Osprey and 4 Honey Buzzards also went south while there were several Rough-legged Buzzards and Red Kites across the fields just drifting about.

                Little else through the afternoon with 3 Black Redstarts in the harbour and another couple of each of Honey Buzzard and Rough-legged Buzzard during a drive along the lanes criss-crossing the fields to the north of Gedser.

Another Blustery Day

torsdag 29. september 2016
af Nigel Judson

This morning started with a continuation of yesterday's storms. With strong winds at first light (05:30hrs). We did , however, manage to get enough nets open to enable us to  complete the standardised net excercise.

The wind swept morning produced only 16 new birds together with 13 recaptures. The highlight was a 1st year Kestrel.

Here are the list of birds for todays:- lets hope tomorrow's better.

1 Kestrel / Tårnfalk, 1 Dunnock / Jernspurv, 7 Robins / Rødhals, 1 Song Thrush / Sangdrossel, 1 Chiffchaff / Gransanger, 1 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge.

The big gull flock feeding in the fields just in front of the garden produced the highlights as it contained a classic 1K Caspian Gull and a 2K Mediterranean Gull while a single Red Kite overhead was the only other bird of note.

                There was little different at Bøtø at lunchtime with 3 Hen Harriers, a Marsh Harrier, 2 White-tailed Eagles, c80 Cranes and 2 Spotted Redshanks with the usual large numbers of birds while the following drive around the fields just produced 39 Barnacle Geese at Kroghage of note.

Seasonally appropriate

Overcast with a blazing force 7-8 south-easterly wind meant that, perhaps for the first time it actually felt like autumn but the conditions severely limited how many nets we could open as we only just managed to carry out a standardised session; the very meagre total of 15 new birds caught did however include another smart first winter Red-breasted Flycatcher.

Today's ringing totals - 3 Wren / Gaerdesmutte;  5 Robin / Roedhals;  1 Blackcap / Munk;  3 Chiffchaff / Gransanger;  2 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge;  1 Red-breasted Flycatcher / Lille Fluesnapper

                Not too much else to mention in difficult conditions (sunny and bright in the afternoon but the strong wind remained) with 3 Rough-legged Buzzards, 3 Red Kites and a smattering of Kestrels and Sparrowhawk across the fields north of Gedser before a walk up the coast just produced 2 Rock Pipits and a Wheatear on the beach.

An awesome start to the morning, the kind of morning that makes every autumn worthwhile; very calm and overcast with the garden full of calling Robins and Goldcrests from before dawn while overhead there was the constant calls of Song Thrushes and Redwings – fantastic!   The ringing was predictably very busy with an excellent 487 new birds caught – although it tailed off after mid-morning when the sun came out turning the day once again warm and tropical.

                The total was dominated by 178 Goldcrests, 114 Chiffchaffs and 100 Robins along with 40 Wrens and 17 Song Thrushes while the highlights were another Yellow-browed Warbler and another Red-breasted Flycatcher.

Today's totals - 40 Wren / Gaerdesmutte;  9 Dunnock / Jernspurv;  100 Robin / Roedhals;  3 Redstart / Roedstjert;  17 Song Thrush / Sangdrossel;  2 Lesser Whitethroat / Gaerdesanger;  6 Blackcap / Munk;  1 Yellow-browed Warbler / Hvidbrynet Loevsanger;  114 Chiffchaff / Gransanger;  178 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge;  1 Red-breasted Flycatcher / Lille Fluesnapper;  1 Coal Tit / Sortmejse;  4 Blue Tit / Blamejse;  2 Tree Sparrow / Skovspurv;  7 Chaffinch / Bogfinke;  1 Greenfinch / Groenirisk;  1 Goldfinch / Stillits

Red-breasted Flycatcher

                There wasn’t much time for much else but random birds over the garden included several Grey Wagtails with small numbers of Chaffinches, Bramblings, Siskins, Redpolls, Tree Pipits, Meadow Pipits and Skylarks etc. while raptors included Red Kite and Rough-legged Buzzard with a handful of Sparrowhawks and Kestrels.

Warm and tropical still with light winds and some high cloud which thickened by late afternoon; another good total of 111 new birds were caught through the morning with the highlights consisting of 2 Firecrests and a first winter Red-breasted Flycatcher, these came in amongst a good arrival of 63 Chiffchaffs whereas a total of 22 new Robins was relatively low (many of yesterday’s birds were re-trapped).

Today's ringing totals (including this afternoon) - 3 Sparrowhawk / Spurvehoeg;  4 Wren / Gaerdesmutte;  25 Robin / Roedhals;  2 Song Thrush / Sangdrossel;  3 Blackcap / Munk;  68 Chiffchaff / Gransanger;  1 Willow Warbler / Loevsanger;  1 Yellow-browed Warbler / Hvidbrynet Loevsanger;  9 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge;  2 Firecrest / Roedtoppet Fuglekonge;  1 Red-breasted Flycatcher / Lille Fluesnapper;  2 Coal Tit / Sortmejse;  2 Great Tit / Musvit;  4 Chaffinch / Bogfinke;  1 Greenfinch / Groenirisk

2K female and 1K male Sparrowhawk

                Overhead passage was quite light through the first half of the morning but a few raptors started to appear by mid-morning so I had a little watch from the NW corner of the garden (1040-1240) which produced a steady trickle of birds including 12 Rough-legged Buzzards, 6 Honey Buzzards, 23 Sparrowhawks, an adult male Hen Harrier, 4 Red Kites, 7 Common Buzzards, a Merlin and 5 Kestrels; there were also many passerines (and others) heard overhead including Chaffinch (with the typical rush of birds late morning with c550 today), Brambling, Siskin, Skylark (the first day with multiple birds going over), Meadow Pipit, Coal Tit, Yellowhammer, Swallow, White Wagtail, Grey Wagtail (one), Dunlin, Grey Plover and Ringed Plover.

                Re-opened some nets in the afternoon and finally finally caught a Yellow-browed Warbler (it certainly took its time with the hundreds and hundreds in Western Europe at the moment!) along with a few more Chiffchaffs, Robins and Chaffinches while another 3 Rough-legged Buzzards went over the garden.

Åbent Hus

søndag 25. september 2016
af Johanne Øhlers Aagaard

Vejret i dag var perfekt til åbent hus og de omkring 100 gæster der lagde vejen forbi stationen kunne nyde efterårssolen. På trods af at vejret var så godt og vi havde forventet få fugle kunne vi heldigvis vise flere fugle frem så folk fik hvad de kom efter.

I alt 140 fugle blev i dag sendt af sted med ring på, det var mest Rødhalse og Gransangere. Dagens hit blev en Rødtoppet Fuglekonge, den var desværre stået for tidligt op og kom før alle gæsterne. Det ville ellers have været dejligt at kunne vise den lille fine fugl frem.

Over haven fløj der flokke med Bogfinker og Kvækerfinker det meste af formiddagen. Desuden er det værd at nævne de 5 Misteldrosler, 5 Lille Korsnæb, 1 Hvepsevåge og 3 Fjeldvåger der fløj over haven.

A pleasant morning, bright with light southerly winds and varying amounts of cloud coming and going and a warm, sunny afternoon; a decent total of 111 new birds were caught through the morning again dominated by 48 Robins and 36 Chiffchaffs with the usual others thrown in but the overhead passage was almost non-existent with hardly anything seen over the garden with the notable exception of a Hawfinch which circled a few times calling away.

Today's ringing totals - 8 Wren / Gaerdesmutte;  3 Dunnock / Jernspurv;  48 Robin / Roedhals;  1 Song Thrush / Sangdrossel;  2 Lesser Whitethroat / Gaerdesanger;  2 Blackcap / Munk;  36 Chiffchaff / Gransanger;  1 Willow Warbler / Loevsanger;  9 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge;  1 Blue Tit / Blamejse

Adult male Sparrowhawk

                A little look at Bøtø at lunchtime produced the usual array of nice birds including 20+ Cranes, a couple of Rough-legged Buzzards, a Hen Harrier, 3 Merlins (including a lovely adult male which landed in the water for a drink), 4+ White-tailed Eagles, 2 Spotted Redshanks, 3 Ruff and a few Sparrowhawks drifting south before a drive across the fields to the north of Gedser produced a further 8 Rough-legged Buzzards lazily heading vaguely south.  

                A very brief look at the point mid-afternoon then saw 4 more Rough-legged Buzzards and an Osprey heading more determinedly south before a few nets opened in the evening saw a few more Robins and Chiffchaffs caught along with two Sparrowhawks including a cracking adult male.

Kært barn har mange navne

torsdag 22. september 2016
af Johanne Øhlers Aagaard

Efter to dage med et mylder af fugle i haven og derfor travlt med ringmærkningen føltes det som en meget stille dag med 97 ringmærkede fugle. Det er ellers en pæn dag med lige knap 100 fugle efter en stjerneklar nat. Hvis ikke der snart kommer ændringer i vejret kan vi nok godt forvente dage med endnu færre fugle, så vi må håbe at vejret snart slår om.

For tredje dag i træk var Rødhalse den mest dominerende art i nettene og haven vrimler med dem. Hver gang man går rundt om et hjørne flyver en rødhals op. Selvom man godt kan blive lidt træt af at ringmærke Rødhalse er det nu en fin lille fugl som da også er elsket og kendt af mange. Kært barn har mange navne som man siger og det gælder også rødhalsen, som mange kender som Rødkælk. Eller som Dick Passer sagde “en maoistisk vintersportsfugl”.

Det er ikke kun her i haven der ringmærkes mange Rødhalse da det er den hyppigst ringmærkede art i Danmark. Her på fuglestationen er der i år mærket 1475 Rødhalse. Dernæst er de mest hyppigst ringmærkede fugle i Danmark Løvsanger og Fuglekonge. Løvsangere ringmærkes der desværre ikke så mange af længere da den desværre er i tilbagegang. Fuglekonger derimod bliver der mærket en del af her i haven, indtil nu er der mærket 436 her på stedet, de store fuglekonge dage er normalt først i oktober men de er da begyndt at ankomme hen over de sidste par dage. Sidste år blev der mræket 3446 Fuglekonger og 2288 Rødhalse her i haven. Så der er lidt vej endnu hvis de tal skal nås inden der lukkes og slukkes i haven for i år.

På Odden var der ikke gang i trækket som vi havde håbet på. Over vandet var det mest spændende 2 Almindelig Kjove og 35 Dværgmåger, ellers kom der lidt Edderfugle, Sortænder og Pibeænder dryssende. På rovfugle siden var det heller ikke helt hvad vi havde forventet men det blev alligevel til 21 Fjeldvåger, 19 Musvåger, 1 Hvepsevåge, 37 Spurvehøge, 1 Havørn, 3 Røde Glenter og 1 Blå Kærhøg.

Total 97

Gærdesmutte / Wren - 1
Jernspurv / Dunnock - 2
Rødhals / Robin - 43
Sangdrossel / Song Thrush - 7
Gærdesanger / Lesser Whitethtoat - 2
Munk / Blackcap - 4
Gransanger / Chiffchaff - 23
Løvsanger / Willow Warbler - 1
Fuglekonge / Goldcrest - 11
Bogfinke / Chaffinch - 2
Grønirisk / Greenfinch - 1

Beware!! The Blue Tits are coming

onsdag 21. september 2016
af Nigel Judson

Today started with good ringing conditions with an easterly wind and light rain overnight. Cloud cover first thng promised a good day. It ended up another excellent day, although not with the numbers of yesterday. A very good 272 birds were ringed including 2 Garden Warblers, 2 Grasshopper Warblers, a Marsh Warbler and a Redstart . Highest numbers were 171 Robins, 33 Chiffchaffs and 28 Goldcrests.

Ringing sites further north have reported an increase in Blue Tit numbers being ringed. We expect an influx in the next few days. Coming from the UK we are used to Blue Tits, but they do take extra time extracting which can be annoying at a busy migration ringing station like Gedser.

Here are todays totals:-

15 Wren / Gærdesmutte, 1 Dunnock / Jernspurv, 171 Robins / Rødhals, 1 Redstart / Rødstjert, 5 Song Thrushes / Sangdrossel, 2 Grasshopper Warblers / Græshoppersanger, 1 Marsh Warbler / Kærsanger, 1 Lesser Whitethroat / Gærdesanger, 1 Whitethroat / Tornsanger, 2 Garden Warblers / Havesanger, 6 Blackcap / Munk, 33 Chiffchaffs / Gransanger, 28 Goldcrests / Fuglekonge, 2 Blue Tits / Blåmejse, 1 Great Tit / Musvit, 1 Brambling / Kvækerfinke, 1 Greenfinch / Grønirisk
