A pleasant morning, bright with light southerly winds and varying amounts of cloud coming and going and a warm, sunny afternoon; a decent total of 111 new birds were caught through the morning again dominated by 48 Robins and 36 Chiffchaffs with the usual others thrown in but the overhead passage was almost non-existent with hardly anything seen over the garden with the notable exception of a Hawfinch which circled a few times calling away.
Today's ringing totals - 8 Wren / Gaerdesmutte; 3 Dunnock / Jernspurv; 48 Robin / Roedhals; 1 Song Thrush / Sangdrossel; 2 Lesser Whitethroat / Gaerdesanger; 2 Blackcap / Munk; 36 Chiffchaff / Gransanger; 1 Willow Warbler / Loevsanger; 9 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge; 1 Blue Tit / Blamejse
Adult male Sparrowhawk
A little look at Bøtø at lunchtime produced the usual array of nice birds including 20+ Cranes, a couple of Rough-legged Buzzards, a Hen Harrier, 3 Merlins (including a lovely adult male which landed in the water for a drink), 4+ White-tailed Eagles, 2 Spotted Redshanks, 3 Ruff and a few Sparrowhawks drifting south before a drive across the fields to the north of Gedser produced a further 8 Rough-legged Buzzards lazily heading vaguely south.
A very brief look at the point mid-afternoon then saw 4 more Rough-legged Buzzards and an Osprey heading more determinedly south before a few nets opened in the evening saw a few more Robins and Chiffchaffs caught along with two Sparrowhawks including a cracking adult male.
