Beware!! The Blue Tits are coming
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
