Family Dat at Jennes Sø

onsdag 30. juni 2021
af Martina Hillbrand

It has been an interesting morning at Jennes Sø where we do the CES ringing once every 10 days. The goal of the CES is to have a monitoring of breeding birds which includes the breeding success. Today we saw the first signs of such a success as we did have several juvenile birds (born this year) in the nets. The best treat, of course, was a net full of blue tits (blåmejse), 4 juveniles with their mother.

BlueTit

Besides that, we also had the first juvenile blackbird (solsort). For all of these the juvenile plumage is quite different from the adult plumage so it is easy to identify them as juveniles. In other birds, like most of the warblers (e.g. gransanger, havesanger, kærsanger, rørsanger) this is not so easy. With experience you can still age those birds as well and today we had 3 chiffchaffs (gransanger) from this year, along with two adults but they were in the nets at different times so probably not one family. Seeing the many chiffchaffs singing everywhere you would also expect a lot more of them.

Gransangerjuv

Just as we closed the nets for the day we also saw a family of crested tits (topmejse) but we did not manage to catch them. Looking at them was fun too, though.

Taima and Frank went to the cormorant colony later for the monitoring at Skarvsøen. The remaining birds are doing well and will probably start to fledge over the next few weeks. When you see all the cormorants flying back and forth and realize just how many weeks it takes for them before their offspring is ready to feed for themselves, songbirds do seem quite lazy in contrast because it usually only takes them about 4 weeks to raise their chicks. On the other hand, many of the songbirds do make use of the time saved by starting another clutch. A female blackbird that we caught today and who was obviously carrying an egg is proof for that. The first brood must have left the nests already and she just started the next right after that. Here is a juvenile we caught today:

When we got back we took the time to look at the moths we caught in the mothtrap during the night. There were some pretty ones, among them this:

Aftenpåfugleøge

In the afternoon Frank and I went out to fix the remaining nets at Kabeltrommeln in order to be prepared for autumn migration when it starts. For now, however, the winds picked up quite a bit during the day and will stay strong throughout tomorrow so there will not be any ringing tomorrow. We have other work to do for now and hope for better weather from Friday onwards.

Bee-eater (Biædere) and ringing

tirsdag 29. juni 2021
af Frank Osterberg

Godaften !

This morning was a good day for ringing! it was Martina's first ringing session back here in Skagen, we caught a good diverse range of species with some rung less often at Kabeltromen as well as more of this year's juveniles so that's always nice to see. We had a small family of Gærsanger with 2 adults and 2 first years, other highlights were an adult male sisken (Grønsiskin), two first-year Nuthatches (spætmejse, mørkbuget), and a juvenile crested tit (topmejse) along with the usual more common birds which are always a pleasure to catch. whilst between checking the nets I also found a bee-eater (Biædere) flying directly above the site and Simon spotted a spotted redshank (Sortklire) also flying over earlier in the morning and a wood sandpiper (Tinksmed) along the shore. so overall a productive and interesting morning. During the ringing, we were visited by our current guests next door Bent and Lisbeth, where we demonstrated how the nets are used and when we capture a bird how they're processed which they found very informative. We were also joined by another small group where Simon gave a small introduction to ring marking and showed up close the birds in the hand and also around some nets. 

   We then came home and had a short nap before Taima and Martina went back to Kabeltromen to do some net maintenance until we regrouped later also joined by Niels for a nice vegetarian lasagne prepared by Bent and Lisbeth which was very nice, we then enjoyed some cake and coffee brought by Niels which was also very enjoyable, later on this evening will be the Nightjar guided tour organized by Niels which Bent and Lisabeth will be attending so we hope they see and hear plenty of nightjars which we will update in tomorrows blog. WhatsApp_Image_2021-06-29_at_20.12.48.jpegWhatsApp_Image_2021-06-29_at_10.36.29.jpeg

Red Backed shrike and flowers

mandag 28. juni 2021
af Taïma

Hi everybody !

The day started with goodbyes to Jonas and Michaela. They will be greatly missed, thank you for all of what you have done at the station.

We then went to Buttervej to find Red backed Shrikes (Rødrygget Tornskade). We saw a meadow pipit (Engpiber) some green finches (Grønirisk) and some pretty flowers, and finally only saw one Red backed shrike.

We went back through the city to treat ourselves to hot-dogs, then picked up Martina with Simon at the train station. We hope to learn a lot about bird ringing from Martina in the next few weeks. 

No ringing today.

Sløruglemærkning og min sidste dag

søndag 27. juni 2021
af Jonas Pedersen

Ja d'herrer og de damer. Så kom dagen.
Mit første blogindlæg var den første marts og det var også dagen efter jeg ankom. Da jeg kom havde jeg udsigt til 4 måneder med mange fugle. Og det var lige netop det jeg fik. Det har været et fantastisk forår, måske det største nogensinde???

Der var langt mellem de gode perioder, men da de slog til var det ketchup effekt så det vil noget, hold kæft nogle dage, og hold kæft nogle fugle.

Det er vel meget passende med en lille opsummering af månederne. Michaela har allerede lavet et resume af foråret. men jeg vil da glædeligt byde ind med mit eget.

Marts var en overraskende måned for mig. Jeg havde overhovedet ikke forventet det havfugletræk som var i vente. Ekstremt mange tal og nogle stressende dage hvor kliktællerne gløede. Trækket bestod mest af alkefugle, suler og sortænder. Af rariteter kan nævnes de mange fine topskarver, bla. rekordflokken på 20 styks, den største i Danmark nogensinde. Udover det, de to hvide måger, henholdsvis gråmåge og hvidvinget måge. Selvfølgelig kongeørn, islom og en sjat lunder, en art jeg selv var særligt glad for.

(Foto: Knud Pedersen)
April var igen en stor måned med mange tal, der var dage med træk som jeg aldrig nogensinde har oplevet før og som jeg bestemt håber på at opleve igen. Det største var klar de mange finker der trak lige i midten af april, jeg var overhovedet ikke klar over opgaven som jeg fik da jeg skulle tælle dem alle. Hold da kæft!!!
Udover det var der jo nogle spækhuggere som fyldte en hel del, det var godt nok en oplevelse. Arterne der fyldte mest var, Høgeørn, (Steppevåge), hvidnæbbet lom, steppehøg og på en eller anden måde fyldte den sortbrynede albatros som Alex Sand Frich fandt. Jeg så jo ikke selv fuglen, men den fugl er noget af det mest legendarisk jeg kunne forestille mig, og at vide at den har været så nær mig var også stort.
Kan være et billede af farvand

I Maj kunne jeg fornemme at antallet af fugle fald, men antallet af rariteter steg kraftigt. Jeg nød måneden med mange fuglekigger og mange sjældne fugle. Der er her mange arter at nævne men den største var selvfølgelig den gulnæbbede glente som Michaela fandt og fotograferede og som jeg efterfølgende bestemte ud fra billeder. Det er (hvis godkendt(please SU)) ny art for landet, og den sjældneste fugl jeg nogensinde har set i Danmark. Udover det var der en fantastisk oplevelse da den længe ventede prærietrane trak ud over grenen med retning mod Norge, disse øjeblikke glemmer jeg aldrig nogensinde.

Efter en maj måned hvor jeg tror alle havde forventet lidt mere kom Juni, og denne juni var det vildeste jeg nogensinde havde oplevet. Jeg havde overvejet at forlade Skagen omkring den 15 men det var godt jeg ikke gjorde dette.
Der var nogle vilde store dage. Bla den første juni da jeg lavede Skagens 40 fund af Citronvipstjert, en pisseflot han. Den anden juni stod den på østlig rødrygget svale, førstefund for landet samt spækhugger, (formentlig korttået lærke) pomeransfugl og meget mere. Vi bliver ved og den tredje står den på Bjergløvsanger som vi efter den ummidelbare feltobs fanger og ringmærker. Den fjerde står den på adskillige buskrørsangere og en masse aftenfalke, samt begyndelsen på rosenstære-invasionen.
Den femte var dagen, en dag så stor at den forevigt vil stå i historiebøgerne. Vi starter stærkt ud med Silkehejre, rosenstær, aftenfalke, citronvipstjert, lunde, biæder, pirol, kongeørn, buskrørsanger, sort glente. Og da man troede morgenen var fin blev bomberne smidt. Høgeørn, Lille skrigeørn(3?!?!), Gåsegrib!?!??! og sort f*****g stork. hvad sker der lige. Det bliver ikke glemt, nogensinde.

og udover det var juni jo spækket med andre sjældne fugle og store oplevelser som bonapartemåge, atlantisk skråpe, kejserørn og sidst men ikke mindst en rosenterne.

Ulven udeblev... men den må jeg se en anden dag, måske når jeg kommer tilbage til skagen??

Nå! Nu er det tid til dagens strabadser og jeg efterlader fortiden som den var.

Idag sov nogle af os længe og andre knap så længe. Michaela og jeg fik gjort lidt klar med nogle af de sidste hængepartier.
De andre stod op lidt efter, Michaela pakkede og bookede en flybillet så hun kan komme hjem til la france. Jeg skrev de sidste SU-rapporter, så venter vi jo spændt på at SU godkender dem:) 
Jesper og Anne tog afsted, i har været mega fede at have på besøg, tak for jeres energi!!
om eftermiddagen gik vi alle en tur, men med 4 forskellige destinationer jeg kørte til buttervej og her skulle jeg nok have haft Frank med da jeg havde nogle fede rødryggede tornskader som han ikke har set ufatteligt mange af
Han så tilgengæld en duehøg og vil forsøge sig med tornskaderne imorgen.
Michaela gik på stranden og fotograferede nogle bette præstekraver, her mødte hun også vores tidligere gæster Anders og Dorte, og ja det er selvfølgelig Ander som havde os med på oceanariummet, tak for det!
Simon var også kommet tilbage fra København, han ville gerne se rosenterne, men de var uden succes. tilgengæld vandt vi i fodbold og det var han glad for, og han havde haft en fin tur i københavn

Til eftermiddag kom dagens højdepunkt, vi skulle ringmærke slørugleunger på en gård syd for Skagen og det var fandme fantastisk. Lars Bo kom og hentede os og Knud og andre stod klar nede ved gården
Det blev til to unger, et forholdsvist lille kuld, men det giver god mening efter et koldt forår.

WhatsApp_Image_2021-06-27_at_19.48.15.jpeg

Vores nye gæster Bent og Lisbeth kom også med til ringmærkningen efter en 6 timers lang køretur.

Til aften stod den på carbonara a la Taima og det var bare godt. Så tog vi også en tur i fyrtårnet og fik lidt at drikke på Blink.
WhatsApp_Image_2021-06-27_at_22.48.30.jpeg

Nu vil jeg sige farvel, det er selvfølgelig trist og jeg ved at i kommer til at savne mig så ufatteligt meget....... Men frygt ej! Jeg kunne naturligvis ikke finde på at forlade jer.
Så! her i efteråret kan i snildt følge med i Blåvand fuglestations blog(Det gør i vel allerede ikke?:)) for der vil jeg tilbring mit efterår.

Tak til alle de gode mennesker der har været her i løbet af foråret, i ved hvem i er!!

Ka i ha det!
vi ses

Rosenterne, and last blog post

lørdag 26. juni 2021
af Michaëla Berdougo

Hey you all!

This post will be my last, as I am leaving Monday morning.
I have to say, this has been a surprising experience. I arrived here, worried that I wouldn't make it for 4 months. I had very little knowledge of European birds, and when I got to know that the person I was going to be with, Jonas, was a great birder very involved in DOFung at only 19 yo, well I freaked out even more.
The first week was a tough one: I was not expecting to be sitting for four hours in the cold in so much wind. I think I cried a little one of the days. I had to go buy snow pants and a big coat which saved me for most of the season.P1020790.JPG
Morning obs late March. Left to right: Michaëla, Jonas og Knud Pedersen.

Little did I know that I would miss going observing when I was put on ringing most of the days. I missed out on some great observing days at Nordstrand, especially the big finch and thrush days. I did have an amazing one though, with a lot of Pallid Harriers - Steppehøg, and it was just amazing seeing everyone's excitement about rarities being called out.
Never would I have expected to have been the one taking pictures that allowed the find of a new species for Denmark, the Yellow-Billed Kite - Gulnæbbet Glente (and no, I did not keep the bird secret as some might say ;))P5026983.jpg
This is the picture used for identifying the Gulnæbbet Glente

I was not ready for such short nights in May, but it has been surprising to see how my body adapted. I always thought I needed my 8 hours, but five hours of sleep went from being not enough to being a restful night of sleep.
I wasn't expecting to meet such weird people that are now some of my best friends, and I don't think I have laughed so much in such a short period of time. We had such a great team and such great times together.IMG_20210503_103137.jpg

Meeting the local birding community has been such a pleasure, as well as meeting visiting birders in May. Getting to know our weekly guests has brought many adventures, surprises, and so much knowledge.P4073277.JPG

I have had such a great time here, and while I am ready for new adventures in yet another new country, I feel sad leaving this place that I've been calling home for nearly four months.

To the local community: big thanks to Knud for helping me with observations at the beginning of the season, to Oluf for being such great help and company during the ringing, to Jørgen for your presence at ringing, your kindness, and your generosity, to Erik for always bringing your smile and happiness, to Igor for being the sunshine of my day and for all the hair you left on my clothes.
To Lars Bo for taking us ringing Nightjars - Natravn, to Jan Speiermann for your kindness, your help, and your patience on busy days at Kabeltromlen, and to Henrik Kisby for your lovely long-term presence at Kabeltromlen.

To all of our guests for bringing such diversity and excitement to our everyday life.
To all the volunteers that have come and gone, you're so fucking awesome.
To Simon, for giving me such a great opportunity.

Now that I've shed a few tears, here is how our day went.

Following the barbecue and a few drinks, Jonas was the first one to wake up. I followed shortly after and started sorting my future out. Taïma and Frank got then woken up by Jonas, as a Rosean Tern - Rosenterne got called out, seen on Grenen. Off we went, met with Agnita, Jørgen, Erik, and Knud. We got to see it resting on the beach with other terns which was the best view to observe differences. A rosey breast, a black bill, short bright red/orange legs (with a ring!), and very bright compared to a Common Tern - Fjordterne or Arctic Tern - Havterne. It also went foraging, and the difference in its flight was actually quite obvious: a faster wingbeat, a lighter bird with a breezier flight.

Taïma, Frank, and I went home, Taïma made some incredible crepes for our late breakfast, and I started packing. Jonas came back later and was on a meeting with DOFung to organise their next trip.
Jesper and Anne went to the Fishermen's sheds and said there were about 150 of them including some fresh ones, meaning that they seem willing to keep it going as it is. :) They then went to the coastal museum where they learned about shipwrecks and the sailors' lives.

In the afternoon, Taïma and Frank worked on the freezer list, Jonas worked on the Netfugl article on the Roseate Tern - Rosenterne, we both worked on the rarity reports, I continued cleaning my gannet skull in the hope of taking it with me, and Jesper and Anne went to pick Elderberry flowers for dessert.
Frank went on a walk to Grenen, and found a young dead Beech Marten - Husmår. :( There are no apparent signs of the cause of its death, it is in good condition and doesn't seem to have gotten hit by a car.

Jesper and Anne cooked dinner for their last night, some fresh cod in a delicious curry and vegetable sauce accompanied with potatoes, and for dessert... Deep-fried elderberry flowers! Absolutely delicious.

BBQ and Aquarium visit

fredag 25. juni 2021
af Frank Osterberg

Godaften !
Apologies for the late post from yesterday, we hope you're all doing well,
Friday was a good day, we were offered a guided tour around Nordsøen oceanarium by Anders Østerby and very kindly given a lift in the car by Jørgen, Michaela, and Taima enjoyed one particularly friendly young harbour seal who didn't seem to want us to leave. Anders showed us the different types of plankton we can find in the waters around the coast and explained what lessons and courses they are offering to schools and classes to teach them about the oceans, such as our relationships with it, its history such as evolution and what we can do to help.WhatsApp_Image_2021-06-26_at_15.31.41.jpegWhatsApp_Image_2021-06-26_at_15.31.40.jpegWhatsApp_Image_2021-06-26_at_15.31.41_1.jpeg After we returned from the aquarium, me and Taima updated the freezer list of all the dead birds found or brought to us in the area which was interesting to look at all the species up close. we then prepared for the BBQ we had in the evening, preparing the food the drink and the BBQs. As everyone arrived, it was nice to see some new faces and get to know everyone better, as well as a sort of farewell to Jonas and Michaela who will be leaving us on Monday to celebrate the time they have shared here and done for the station during their stay. Once again a big thank you to everyone who came, Jesper for the pictures, and Jørgen for helping get the BBQs ready as non of us really knew what we were doing!

Et fint fødelsdag

torsdag 24. juni 2021
af Taïma

Hej allesammen !
I dag er det Frank´s fødelsdag ! Det startede med en tur for en Klasse fra Jonas, , han gjorde et flot arbejde. Vi fik også fint besøg fra Henning Ettrup som hjalp til med turen! Vi fangede en Munk han i et net til at vise børnene, og Frank ringmærkede hans fødelsdagsfugl , en tornsanger. Michaela fandt også en "Puss Moth" , Cerura vinula .

Efter tog Frank og jeg til byen for at købe lidt ind og få is, imens bagte Michaela og Jonas en god chokolade kage til Frank. Også, tog vi til stranden, men Frank var den eneste der tog en dukkert i Kattegat i dag. Jesper og Anne tog i dag til Skagen´s kunstmuseum og bragte en gave tibage til Frank. Det var en hyggeligt dag :)

En fin dag med lidt ringmærkning

onsdag 23. juni 2021
af Jonas Pedersen

Hej alle, og velkommen til dagens blogindlæg. Nu skal i bare høre.

Vi stod tidligt op og åbnede nettene ved kabeltromlen med forhåbninger om fugle, dem kom der dog ikke mange af. Tilgengæld kom der en frisk Oluf som deltog i ringmærkning, og det var jo som sædvanligt super hyggeligt. Jesper og Anne kom også til ringmærkning og så nogle fugle i hånden. Det blev ikke til meget idag... Men! Vi havde sgu en topmejse og det var mega fedt, ydermere bestemte vi den til en 1k altså en fugl der er klækket i år. Hvis det er rigtigt er det også den første 1k fugl vi ringmærker i år.
WhatsApp_Image_2021-06-23_at_20.30.12.jpeg

Jesper og Anne tog efter ringmærkningen hjem og fik lidt mad og en lur. Herefter stod den på en tur til Hulsig med frokost og også ud for at dyppe tæerne.

Vi tog til stranden da bonapartemågen var meldt fra grenen og efter lidt søgning så vi den fint i strandkanten.

Oluf deltog i eftersøgningen og beviste også at han i sandhed er en strandløve
WhatsApp_Image_2021-06-23_at_20.37.52.jpeg

I mellemtiden var Taima taget med toget mod Aalborg for at få en coronavaccination, der blev på turen også tid til det meget eftertragtede tebirkes og kebab!

Michaela og jeg tog til skarvsøen for at lave vores tællinger, og Frank gik på firbensjagt.

Senere stod den på en lille tur til flagbakken hvor der ikke var så mange fugle, men det var veldigt hyggeligt, på flagbakken var også Henrik Rask der jo i sidste uge fandt en skideflot 3k Kejserørn, en sand drømmefugl.

Til aften lavede Jesper og Anne aftensmad, og den stod på brasiliansk bønnesuppe. Det smagte super godt, tak for det.

Det var vores dag, håber at jeres har været god også!

Wandering around Skagen

tirsdag 22. juni 2021
af Michaëla Berdougo

Hi folks! :)

I hope you had a great weekend!

As you know, ringing officially stopped on the 20th, so no ringing this morning. Instead, Jonas planned on going on a sound-listening walk which Taïma and Frank wanted to attend. Jonas woke up at 4 am, and Frank came out a bit later to go to the bathroom. They had a chat about when Jonas would leave, and Frank decided to go back to bed. Turns out he did not remember a thing about the conversation and was sleepwalking! :P 

Jonas ended up leaving on his own and had about 13 Marsh Warblers - Kærsanger, lots of Chiffchaff - Gransanger singing as well as Common Whitethroats - Tornsanger, and some Reed Warbler - Rørsanger and Icterine Warblers - Gulbug.

I woke up at 6 am and went out to take pictures. I wanted to find a deer to photograph before going next week, so I walked towards Batteriskoven where Jonas was, on his way back to the station. He messaged me that there were a deer and her fawn closer to the lighthouse, so I went back. I ended up sitting on the heath, surrounded by three deers, when I finally saw the mom and the young one. I got some videos! We don't see the fawn much as I was down in the grass not to spook them away.

Taïma and Frank woke up around 9 am, Jonas was taking a nap and I sorted my pictures after that.
Our guests, Jesper and Anne, went for a walk to Sandmilen and sat on the beach and ate some nice cake. They then went to town to buy some drinking glasses for their friends and went shopping for tomorrow evening as they will be kindly cooking for all of us. :)

Jonas shaved today and now, as he says himself, somehow looks 14 yo and 40 yo at the same time.

In the afternoon, we volunteers went to the harbour to try and find the Bonaparte's Gull - Bonaparte Måge, without success. We did see a Black Guillemot - Tejst though, which was Frank's second and Taïma's first. We then went to Flagbakken and stopped at a bakery on the way to get some nice cake to eat there.

WhatsApp_Image_2021-06-22_at_21.14.57.jpeg

We went on a walk to Den Tilsandede Kirke which was very nice and then headed back. Frank made us a lovely dinner with homemade Focaccia.

We will now be watching Inglorious Basterds and go to bed not too late as we will be ringing tomorrow! We will just open later.

Have a great evening :D

Visit to town

mandag 21. juni 2021
af Frank osterberg

Hej Allesammen,

No ringing today, but still an enjoyable morning. I, Michaela, and Taima cycled into town for some shopping and enjoyed a hotdog each while Jonas stayed back at the station doing some admin and data entry, so we will be sure to treat him next time. Jonas also went for a walk and had some interesting experiences, a baked potato in the dunes from mysterious origins, some wings from a suspected little egret (Silkehejre), and a surprise near-collision from a pheasant (Fasan) underfoot. Jesper and Anne also had a pleasant walk with views of yellowhammer (Gulspurv) and some orchids.2106_town.jpeg Michaëla was our chef tonight with a tofu tikka masala with Jesper and Anne also joining us for dinner which was very enjoyable as expected. With pudding consisting of my first try of Koldskål and Kammerjunker biscuits which also was also delicious of course which I clearly have been missing out from back home in England.
