A grey start of the day and a little surprise at the end of the morning

søndag 13. maj 2018
af Robert Luttik

The day started with fog and there were hardly any birds flying. First round we had no birds second round 1 and in the third round 2. In total we caught 20 birds (14 new ones and 6 recaptures). Nets were open till 15.00 hours. So not much work. At the end of the morning we were surprised when a Karmindompap was flying into the net. It was a second year female. It is not a real rare bird, but nevertheless it was the first of the season. Further there is hardly anything to tell.

Although, we had a roe deer in the garden and luckely not in the nets. A White-tailed Eagle was sitting in the field a little bit in the direction of Gedser and a Crane was flying over.

Late addition. Caught at little lake one Engpiber/Meadow Pipit, so total is now 21.

Hope tomorrow will bring more birds.
