Light south-easterly winds and a clear sky this morning brought a little taste of autumn colours. A slight increase of Rødhals and the arrival of Jernspurv started the day off. The net rounds progressed at a steady rate allowing for our new trainee Emma to receive a thorough introduction into the science of ringing and tackle the subtle differences between 1k and 2k+ Munk. Quickly the day heated up reaching 19 degrees by 10:45. Activity came to a stand-still.
1k Jernspurv indicated by a pale brown iris and pale coloured base of lower mandible.
Raptor watching was the priority of the afternoon. A large thermal of 22 Musvåger and 2 Rød Glente was seen from the Lighthouse above the cumulus clouds. 2 Lærkefalke, 5 Fiskeørne and approximately 10,000 Svaler were seen from the tip.
