An autumnal theme

tirsdag 6. september 2016
af Alex Penn

 

Today dawned clear and still, and with the dawn came a mass exodus of birds from the garden - amazing to see big numbers of Dunnocks and Robins calling, flying up and heading southwards. Correspondingly the majority of birds caught today were Robins (47) and Dunnocks (19) with the first 2 Wrens of the autumn too. 

129 new birds were processed, consisting of:

Gærdesmutte/Wren - 2, Jernspurv/Dunnock - 19, Rødhals/Robin - 47, Rødstjert/Redstart - 3, Kærsanger/ Marsh Warbler - 1, Gulbug/Icterine Warbler - 1, Gærdesanger/Lesser Whitethroat - 18, Havesanger/Garden Warbler - 2, Munk/Blackcap - 7, Gransanger/Chiffchaff - 10, Løvsanger/Willow Warbler - 4, Grå Fluesnapper/ Spotted Flycatcher - 2, Broget Fluesnapper/Pied Flycatcher - 2, Blåmejse/Blue Tit - 1, Rødrygget Tornskade/Red-backed Shrike - 1, Skovspurv/Tree Sparrow - 8, Gulspurv/Yellowhammer - 1.  

A juvenile Rough-legged Buzzard was briefly seen circling the fields north of the Observatory in the afternoon today, the first of the autumn. Siskins and Redpolls were moving over the garden throughout the morning, as well as smaller numbers of Tree Pipit and Yellow Wagtail.
