Whatever the wind...

lørdag 22. april 2017
af Marie Chevalier

Although there were some birds in the bushes this morning, the wind did not allow us to open much nets and it made them too visible to help us catch birds.
So, in the end, it was a quiet day with only 13 birds ringed. The highlight of the day, although not as good as yesterday, proved the theory I explained a couple of days ago: Winter is definitely coming, bringing new bramblings!


My trainee is behaving well :D and we both learn a lot from his never ending questions!

We also went for a small hour to do some seawatching because the wind was still strong. Some long-tailed ducks and a little tern were our reward!

Another nice observation was a male stonechat sitting on branches in Gedser.

Birds ringed today:
Rødhals - robins: 1
Munk - Blackcap: 2
Gransanger - Chiffchaff: 3
Fuglekonge - Goldcrest: 1
Musvit - Great tit:1
