Another Blustery Day

torsdag 29. september 2016
af Nigel Judson

This morning started with a continuation of yesterday's storms. With strong winds at first light (05:30hrs). We did , however, manage to get enough nets open to enable us to  complete the standardised net excercise.

The wind swept morning produced only 16 new birds together with 13 recaptures. The highlight was a 1st year Kestrel.

Here are the list of birds for todays:- lets hope tomorrow's better.

1 Kestrel / Tårnfalk, 1 Dunnock / Jernspurv, 7 Robins / Rødhals, 1 Song Thrush / Sangdrossel, 1 Chiffchaff / Gransanger, 1 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge.

Kestrel

The big gull flock feeding in the fields just in front of the garden produced the highlights as it contained a classic 1K Caspian Gull and a 2K Mediterranean Gull while a single Red Kite overhead was the only other bird of note.

                There was little different at Bøtø at lunchtime with 3 Hen Harriers, a Marsh Harrier, 2 White-tailed Eagles, c80 Cranes and 2 Spotted Redshanks with the usual large numbers of birds while the following drive around the fields just produced 39 Barnacle Geese at Kroghage of note.
