En smuk svømmesneppe

The day has finally come…the arrival of the Skovsanger, and a sigh of relief from me. On the second net round of the day I was confronted with a crisp looking Leaf warbler at Ø1. Fuller in size than our more regular Løvsangers and a quick glace of the wider supercilium, the pure white belly contrasting the greenish hue of the upperparts, I was excited and nervous of the confirmation of a Skovsanger. This bird I have been studying in books for some weeks now, the records indicating a much earlier arrival date than this. Perhaps our nets have just been unlucky until now, a beautiful moment nonetheless to identify my first ever Skovsanger. 

The net round was still not over as the top shelf of the canopy net produced a more uncommon catch for Gedser, a Tårnfalk. Laying patiently in the net with its first meal of the day we carefully lowered it. A feistier character than a Spurvehøg, it required some caution to extract from the net, coupled with overflowing admiration for this striking predator. 

A quiet day on the nets meant that we closed just after standard time.

Lidt obs fra odden resultater fortalte os, at der igen var relativt få fugle på Odden, præget af meget lidt vind og for meget varme. Der kom dog lidt sprøde sager i løbet af dagen, såsom en rødstrubet piber, sandløber, islandske ryler, lille kobbersneppe og lille præstekrave. Igen meget få rovfugle i luften, så det kan forventes at vi ser et ryk i den nærmeste fremtid af spurvehøge, tårnfalke og rørhøge.

Ved 12 tiden tog vi en tur til Kaløgrå med Gert for at kigge på vadefugle. Da vi ankom var der pænt med vadefugle rundt omkring, bland andet 100 hvidklirer, 30 krumnæbbet ryle, 350 alm. ryle og 12 strandhjejle. Der var også en flot 1k odinshane som fouragerede i en af søerne kun 5 meter fra os, så det gav nok den bedste obs af den art for os alle sammen.

To top the day off we arrived home to a home-cooked meal by Claus and Nina. As we ate, the winds picked up and so did the conversation as we spoke about the day’s news and recent adventures in the North. Beautiful company and food made the evening a special one. Gedser we love you! 

I morgen lover de hård vestenvind! Baren er derfor ikke sat højt, men efter intet mindre end en fantastisk dag i dag - så er vores forhåbningerne trods alt, temmelig høje!

Bedste hilsner,
