Feels like autumn but where are the birds?

lørdag 3. september 2016
af Simon Davies

A much more autumnal feeling morning (apart from the lack of birds!) - overcast with a moderate westerly wind with little bits of drizzle moving through; there was however an almost complete lack of birds in the garden and therefore in the nets we could open with just 8 new birds ringed, two Redstarts the best of it!

Todays totals (for what they are worth!) - 1 Dunnock / Jernspurv;  2 Redstart / Roedstjert;  1 Blackbird / Solsort;  2 Lesser Whitethroat / Gaerdesanger;  1 Garden Warbler / Havesanger;  1 Willow Warbler / Loevsanger

                After the drizzle had moved through at lunchtime there was a brief burst of raptors moving through as my counts included 18 Honey Buzzards and an Osprey with a few Sparrowhawks, Kestrels and Marsh Harriers – pretty much all of them moved to the west of the station with many of them heading due west into the wind over Gedser town and Kroghage.

Honey Buzzard

                A walk out to the point and north along the coast late afternoon then produced 3 Marsh Harriers and a flock of 12 Ruff south with 4 Common Sandpipers and a Turnstone on the beach.
