April fool's day and Easter fun!

torsdag 1. april 2021
af Laima Bagdonaite

The day started quite early, Daniel, Mikkel and I got up at 5 and went out to open the nets and activate the reed trap by 6:15am. Unfortunately, it was quite windy so we couldn’t open all the nets. It was also too cold to stay up on Kabeltromlen, so we took shelter down the hill from there and ringed there the whole morning. The rounds were quite slow and there were not so many birds, but we did have a couple of exciting captures! A nice adult female sparrowhawk (Spurvehøg), and later an adult male Goldcrest (Fuglekonge) with a ring from Germany! It’s always super exciting to catch birds with foreign rings!

Even though we didn’t have many birds, Mikkel got to practice handling birds and taking wing measurements, he also extracted his 3 first birds from the net! We also had quite a few people staying with us throughout the morning; a nice family from Copenhagen, Jørgen and Igor, Erik Christophersen, Søren Skov, and Marianne just to name a few!

Meanwhile, Jonas went out observing at Verdens ende 1 together with Henrik and Nicole Böhmer, Alex Sand Frich, and they were also joined by Erik Christophersen. They had quite a nice first hour of observations with a lot of auks (Alkefugle), a couple of great skuas (Storkjove), a handful of fulmars (Mallemuk) and 6 European shags (Topskarv). Jonas stayed for an extra hour to enjoy the raptor migration, they counted around 150 common buzzards (Musvåge), two merlins (Dværgfalk), and many sparrowhawks (Spurvehøg).

Back at the observatory, Michaela, Mikkel, Daniel and I went for a fun but cold swim in the sea and the did some yoga in the living room. That’s where Jonas found us when he came back. After lunch we all took quick 10 minute naps. During that time Simon prepared for the Easter fun afternoon. Apparently The Easter bunny visited the garden and laid 10 chocolate eggs there which we had to find! The hunt was successful (not for me though, as I found none.), all 10 eggs were found and shared among us! After that Simon made us go up to the attic because we had to find and catch the bats that started living there. We put on gloves and started checking all the corners with flashlights, but soon we realized it was actually April fool’s prank!

After that, our Easter fun continued and we blew and painted some eggs! Everyone went with the bird theme which resulted in a nice collection of painted eggs that are now hanging in the observatory garden if anyone wants to see them! We had an early omelet dinner, and went swimming after it again!

Overall, it was a lovely sunny day with lots of fun and laughter!

Some firsts for Mikkel, and some firsts for the year

onsdag 31. marts 2021
af Michaëla Berdougo

Hey folks :)

Hope you all had a great beginning of the week! 
Today, Laima and Daniel woke up at 5:00 am to open nets. Simon and I joined them for the first round, which was the busiest round of the day with many Chiffchaffs (Gransanger), Wrens (Gærdesmutte), and two Reed buntings (Rørspurv).

We placed the reed mirror trap where it will tomorrow be activated.
Simon's dad met with us for the ringing and thoughtfully brought us cake and all kinds of bread and pâté. Delicious, thank you Gunnar!
Our guest, Marianne, also joined us and actually scribed for us which was of great help. She came back with her husband and her daughter on the last round, so they all got to see the ringing process. :) 
In the meantime, Jonas and Mikkel met up with Knud at Verdens Ende 3 for morning observation. Scoters (Sortand) were active, and Buzzard (Musvåge) migration is slowly beginning with about 50 individuals this morning only. Knud, Jonas, and Mikkel saw 2 young shags (Topskarv) including one foraging, and those were Mikkel's firsts! They also got the opportunity to see a Caspian gull (Kaspisk måge) shortly resting, and the first Barn swallow (Ladesvale) for the year, that we also managed to see at Kabeltromlen, as well as the first Green sandpiper (Svaleklire) of the year! Five porpoises were also very active close to the shore. Once they were done, they met with us and Mikkel got to handle his very first Robin (Rødhals)! Tomorrow will be his first day ringing and he's super excited about it.
After having a quick lunch break, Laima opened nets in the garden while Jonas, Daniel, Mikkel and I went to Skarvsøen to check on the Cormorant (Skarv) colony. So far, 58 cormorants were present, and 13 nests were occupied. We will from now on visit the colony twice a week to do nest monitoring and report how many breeding birds there are and their behaviour, as well as how many eggs, young ones, and fledglings. While monitoring the nests, we had two Great egrets (Sølvhejre) flying over, as well as 3 Cranes (Trane), 3 Red kites (Rød glente), and a Woodcock (Skovsneppe) that we flushed on the way back.

Here is our labeling for some of the nests that were occupied.
Daniel headed back home and entered the daily ringing data with Laima, while Jonas and Mikkel went looking for raptors. I took a stroll in Nordstrand looking for shells and skulls before going home. 
For a great finish to this busy day, Jonas made us a lovely vegan tofu stir fry and it was fantastic. He's now playing guitar while I write this sentence:

Early Arrivals during a windy observation

tirsdag 30. marts 2021
af Daniel Bloche

Since it was to windy for ringing, we all started together observing with Knud at Worlds End 3 this morning. It was a very windy day, so even though the temperatures were quite high, it felt very cold. Though, it was definitely worth it to go out on migration count today! We had many early arrivals: A Great Skua (Storkjove), Marsh Harrier (Rørhøg), Merlin (Dværgfalk) and Common Tern (Fjordterne). Knud was very excited especially about the early Common Tern. While the others started observing, Laima and I put up the newly build Woosh net, trying to catch the last Snow Buntings (Snespurv) before they are all gone to their northern breeding grounds. Unfortunately, it was a very disappointing experience. There were still four Snow Buntings left on the beach at Grenen, however, they behaved much more scared and suspicious then the bigger floks used to behave the weeks before. That the Woosh net was moving in the strong wind, wasn´t helping. In the end we didn´t caught any, we tried two times to catch birds, though. The first time a stick in the sand blocked the net from correctly unfolding and the second time we weren´t fast enough/the birds wasn´t close enough. After getting too frustrated with this, I switched with Michaela to counting Corvids and had two nice observation hours with many close Red-throated Divers (Rødstrubet Lom) in winter and summer plumage, which was very nice to see. A small bandage on the Snow Bunting catch failure was also the visit from Jørgen and Igor, its always nice to see them. In the afternoon, there was a open freezer tour. Four families joined with some really motivated kids. It was nice to show and dissect some of the dead birds we collect for scientific purposes. It was interesting to also look through some Barn Owl (Slørugle) pallets and see skulls and bones of rodents.

Also Simons dad Gunnar arrived and brought delicious cake with him. After the open-freezer tour Laima and I made some Swedish Kanelbullar. Meanwhile, Jonas and Mikkel went to the new harbour, where Mikkel found his first Glaucous Gull (Gråmåge). Later in the afternoon we also prepared the visits to the Cormorant (Skarv) colony, which we will conduct from tomorrow on two times a week.

Aldersbestemmelse af småfulge og "ulvejagt"

mandag 29. marts 2021
af Mikkel Friborg Mortensen

Hej allesammen!

Dagen i dag har mest af alt været en inde dag, men det gjorde ikke så meget fordi så havde vi tid til at ordne nogle af de pratiske ting på Fuglestationen bla. at forberede dagens spændende aldersbestemmelses session af småfugle!

Morgenen startede med at Jonas og jeg tog ud til solopgang for at morgenobs'e, det blev en kort fornøjelse da der næsten ingen sigt var og da det bare blev ved med at regne.. Så efter en halv time pakkede vi sammen og tog tilbage til Fuglestationen. Her gjorde Daniel, Laima og Michaela klar til at lappe spejlnet - one down one more to go!

Jonas og jeg lavede computerarbejde og fik styr på beskrivelser til hjemmesiden samt natlytsoptagelser! Simon var også på stationen og har idag fået bestil nye waders og telt - så der kan ringmærkes i læ for vinden og helt uden at blive våde når vi går gennem vandpytterne ved kabeltromlen!

Daniel forberedte vores eftermiddagssession og fik sorteret vores billede arkiv samtidig, så det kan bruges af os frivillige som hjælp til bestemmelse af fremtide fugle der skal ringmærkes! Daniel og jeg færdiggjorde også vores "rørskovs-spejlfælde" *mere info senere, i fremtiden!

Det var også en dejlig overraskelse da Niels Eriksen kom forbi hen af formiddagen med kage til de frivillige - den smagte dejligt! Han afholdte en guidet tur med 10 detagere som trodsede vejret og blev belønnet med bl.a. Snespurve helt tæt på, inden for 5 meters afstand!

Lidt Senere kom en anden ven af Fuglestationen på besøg, nemlig Rita Pate. Hun havde medbragt en dejlig kurv med lidt påskehygge og lækkerier til os frivillige - fantastisk, mange tak! Der var også lidt ekstra til næste indkøb, så vi kan købe ind til et fint måltid en dag i fremtiden.

Så da det blev eftermiddag var tiden endelig til at vi skulle afholde vores spændende session omkring aldersbestemmelse af småfugle (foto)

166090718 817077895563462 2085937672183103014 n

Her fik vi diskuteret dragtkarakterer hos bl.a. Gransanger, Rørspurv, Jernspurv og Træløber. Alle billederne var af fulge vi selv havde haft i hånden, som blev undersøgt og aldersbestemt - heldigvis havde vi ramt rigtigt med alle fuglene vi gennemgik (det havde vi nu også regnet med).

Derefter tog Simon og jeg ud for at hente en "ny" cykel som vi har været så heldige at få fra nogle venner af Fuglestationen, nemlig Trine og Jeppe som havde en cykel i overskud. Jeg cyklede den hjem og den kørte bare super godt, den er vi glade for - tak!

Da vi kom tilbage skulle vi faktisk til at lave aftensmad og holde aftenmøde - men så kom meldingen: "Ulv set fra Grenen ved Grenensøen" 1,2,3 og vi var alle ude af døren på jagt efter ulven! Jeg tog på Grenen, Jonas, Daniel, Laima og Michaela tog til en bakke nord for Ellekrattet og Simon tog til Nordstrand. Selvom vi rykkede hurtigt og ledte (i to timer for Daniel, Jonas og jeg) så fandt vi desværre ikke nogen ulv. Simon mødte dog vores gæster fra lejligheden på Nordstranden - hyggeligt! Men spændende var det og vi fik da også selskab af to syngende Traner på vej tilbage til Fuglestationen! Og vi er selvfølgelig klar på at rykke hurtigt igen næste gang der bliver meldt ulv!

Nu er vi alle trætte og klar til dejlig aftensmad som Michaela har stået for! I morgen blæser det nok for meget til at der kan ringmærkes.. desværre. Tilgengæld skal der trækobs'es og vi møder 4 mand høj til solopgang og får selskab af Knud Pedersen på Grenen til en forhåbentlig dejlig trækdag.

Ingen ringmærkning i dag: så 0 fugle.

Sortstrubet bynkefugl på en fandens kold dag

søndag 28. marts 2021
af Jonas Pedersen

Ja, søndagens vejrudsigt bød på noget anderledes vejr fra de andre dage hvor en diset horisont dominerede. Idag skulle vejret blive fint med noget vind og en lille solstråle.
Daniel og vores nyankomne frivillige Mikkel tog ud for at observere, samtidig med at de ville fange lidt snespurve med det nye "whoosh-net". Det skulle dog ikke blive en succes da de ikke var så tiltrukket af de små fine korn idag.
Til gengæld var observationerne fine, med mange sortænder igen. Efterfølgende tog de til kabeltromlen hvor Laima, Michaela, Simon, Jørgen, Igor og jeg ringmærkede.

Vi stod noget tidligere op, men grundet det forvirrende skift til sommertid sagde uret at vi fik en time mere. Nettene blev åbnet og vi kunne mærke i luften at der var godt med fugle. Første runde bød på fuglekonger, min første gransanger for året og andre godter. De mange fugle blev ved og jeg panikkede en smule da en stor flok mejse var røget i nettet. Vejret var nemlig koldt og fingrene havde ikke meget mobilitet til at få de små fugle ringmærket. 

På en lidt mere stille runde havde Laima en overraskelse i en af poserne, der gemte sig nemlig en utrolig flot sortstrubet bynkefugl, bestemt den første jeg har set i hånden og en stor oplevelse.
(Billede: Erik Christophersen) (Den fine sortstrubede bynkefugl han)
Fuglen skulle naturligvis meldes på zello og simon havde hurtigt telefonen fremme. Han skulle dog have tænkt sig lidt om før han snakkede, han fik nemlig meldt en ringmærket sortstrubet jernspurv ud på zello, og jeg kunne forestille mig at samtlige twitchere i Danmark allerede havde sat sig i bilerne. Simon giver kvajebajer!

Knud er også kommet tilbage og idag havde han en lille gruppe rundt for at fortælle dem om fugle, de var naturligvis forbi kabeltromlen for at se lidt fugle i hånden.
Knud tour
Da de var på besøg skulle vi også være så heldige at se årets første rørhøg, det var fedt.
Hjemme på fyret var famileforeningen også på en tur rundt på grenen.

Efter en forholdsvis lang dag i felten var det hjem. Da der var spist frokost meldte Mikkel hurtigt ud at han skulle på havnen for at se gråmåge, jeg var på! Vi tog afsted og det var muligvis lidt en fejl, det regnede nemlig, meget..
Vi fik dog købt ind, set den nye havneudvidelse, 3 tejster og en fandens masse måger, dog ikke nogen der var grå. Vi var selvfølgelig fuldstændig gennemblødte da vi kom hjem. Men vi skal afsted igen!
Laima er jo så god, og hun fik rengjort laboratoriet, det er vi glade for, der var nemlig meget lort på bordet og det er nu væk. Daniel fik opdateret vores billedsamling og Michaela fik arbejdet med ringmærkningsdataen. 
Til aften stod den på lækker risotto og brætspil.

2 traps in one day!

lørdag 27. marts 2021
af Laima Bagdonaite

Hey hey!

The morning started off misty, so we didn't go ringing. Michaela and Jonas woke up early and went out observing at Verdens ende 3 but the visibility was quite low and they could only see approximately 500m over the sea.They did have some scoters (Sortand), sparrowhawks (Spurvehøg), stock doves (Huldue) and 4 terns (Terner), so it wasn't that bad!




WhatsApp Image 2021 03 27 at 12.58.33

Back at the station, Daniel and I got to sleep in until 7am, however being used to waking up, both woke up way before that.. around 5-6am. I made some beetroot hummus for the sandwiches when we go out ringing. And after breakfast we started working on our whoosh net outside. We also opened the lighthouse garden nets and caught some robins and goldcrests, however it soon started raining, so we had to close the nets and go inside. 

As we were closing the nets, Michaela and Jonas came back from observations, so we decided to have breakfast together and I made pancakes! After breakfast, we played some card games. Then, since it was still raining and we couldn't continue working  on the whoosh net, we decided to continue working on the mirror trap instead. With different bits and pieces we picked up in the city yesterday, we successfully finished the trap! 


Meanwhile, Michaela and Jonas were going through night recordings. They heard some migrating thrushes. Also Jonas got to ring a goldcrest! Simon was working on ideas for the project birds for all, where children will come and learn about nature! Then he picked up our new volunteer Mikkel Friborg Mortensen who will stay with us for one week! Then he did some reparations at the guest's apartment and had a nice conversation with them!



After lunch it finally stopped raining, so Daniel and I went outside and finished the whoosh net, too!  We tried it a few times in the garden and then decided we should all head to the beach and try to catch some snow buntings with the new whoosh net! Unfortunately, there were no snow buntings (Snespurv) this time. But we will try again tomorrow!

First chiffchaffs ringed, blackcap from the Netherlands, and a shit load of scoters

fredag 26. marts 2021
af Michaela Berdougo

Hi folks! 

Hope you are all doing well and are ready to start the weekend. 

Our day was pretty exciting today! Daniel and I woke up at 4:00 am to open nets up and as we did, Daniel flushed either a Long-eared Owl (Skovhornugle) or a Short-eared Owl (Mosehornugle). Laima came to join us for the first round while Jonas, on his end, went observing at Verdes Ende 1. Oluf joined us for ringing, and so did our guest Berit. Little did we know that Anders and Dorte, our guests from the second week, would suprise us with a visit at Kabeltromlen! It was so lovely seeing them again. 

As for ringing, we caught our first Chiffchaffs (Gransanger), and a male and female Reed Bunting (Rørspurv). We also had the chance of catching a control Blackcap (Munk), ringed in the Netherlands, which was super exciting!

IMG 20210326 WA0012 Rørspurve female (left) and male (right)

IMG 20210326 WA0011Munk from the Netherlands

Jonas on his side had 6311 Scoters (Sortand), 2 Black Guillemots (Tejst) including one adult in summer plumage, and because his eyes were on the sea, focus was taken away from the land birds. I therefore went to help him out for a bit but as things slowed down, I went back to ringing. 

We got back for lunch, all took a nap and relaxed a bit before cleaning the house ang going for the biggest grocery shopping ever. We also bought necessary equipment for finishing the reed mirror trap, as well as for buidling a woosh net.

Guess who won the Klask and Shuffleboard tournament?

torsdag 25. marts 2021
af Daniel Bloche

This morning, Michaëla and Jonas went observing from Worlds End 1. Although the wind on top of the dunes was shaking in their scopes, Jonas found three Shags (Topskarv). Besides that, they had an Artic Skua (Almindelig Kjove) and even more migrating Common Scoters (Sortand) then yesterday as well as many different Geese species; Barnacle- (Bramgås), Greylag- (Grågås), Pink-footed- (Kortnæbbet Gås) and Brent Goose (Knortegås). Some of them also flew over us in the ringing. On their way back they found this little Salamander.

Meanwhile, Laima and I spend the morning in the ringing-site at Kabeltromlen. Again the ringing was dominated by Blackbirds (Solsort) but also Blue Tits (Blåmejse). However, this time we were better prepared for many Blackbirds and had enough collection tubes for the tick samples. So, we stayed quite busy during the first rounds taking ticks of the Blackbirds to send them in for further analysis and research. Although, Blackbirds are common birds its always nice to handle them. It´s great to see the variations between individuals and always amazing to see these beautiful male adult birds. We also got visited by Søren, a local bird-watcher, and our guest Berit.

In the evening we had a small tournament in Klask and Shuffleboard. Of course, I won all the games (@Simon: I think I earned an ice cream for that). To let the others feel better I let them win the card game rounds we had afterwards. All in all, a good observation and ringing day with a fun evening!

En sort dag

onsdag 24. marts 2021
af Jonas Pedersen

Ja, som der står, en sort dag. Ikke fordi det har været en særligt dårlig dag. Men fordi vi har haft nogle meget mørke arter. 

Dagen startede tidligt for Daniel og Laima som stod op og åbnede nettene. Planen for dem var klar. Op, ringmærkning hvor de fik fint selskab af Oluf Lou som deltog i ringmærkningen. Hjem i god tid for skole.

Michaela og jeg tog ud for at tælle træk, blæsten var ikke slem så vi satte os på verdens ende 1 og blev mødt af fire trækkende fiskehejrer, en art der bestemt ikke har været mange af her for tiden. Det var koldt og klamt vejr og det var meget diset ude i horisonten så bestemmelse var besværlig i det mørke vejr. En særlig art stak ud i dag. En meget mørk art, nemlig sortanden som der trak mange af mod sydøst, vi nåede op på 2000 individer og der skulle nok være flere der trak efter vi stoppede med at tælle.

I ringmærkningen havde de også gang i en mørk art, solsort var nemlig en talrig art med 27 indivder som fik ring på, udover det havde de også sangdrossel og rødhals, så en drossel-dag så at sige.
sol 1

Jørgen og Igor var også forbi for at sige hej og det var jo som altid en kæmpe fornøjelse.

Efter vi kom hjem stod den på afslapning og nogle huspligter.
Michaela og jeg tog et smut til Jennes sø for at se om der skete noget, det gjorde der ikke. Men vi fik set nogle af Michael Anchers net og vi hørte nogle sjove lyde ude i rørskoven.

Så var det hjem igen hvor der blev spillet brætspil og hørt musik. 
Vi lavede noget lækker vegansk spaghetti med (kødsovs?) og nu er det vidst tid til en film eller måske noget mere musik.
Imorgen er det mere ringmærkning og observation og vi håber på nogle lækkerier.

Exciting new species for the station!

tirsdag 23. marts 2021
af Laima Bagdonaite

Hey hey!

In the morning Michaela and Daniel went to Verdens ende 1 to observe sea migration, while the rest of us went ringing at Kabeltromlen.

When we were opening the nets, a woodcock flew just across our path! Then, on the first round we found a cute mouse in the nets and quickly released it unharmed.mouse

Later on, we had quite a few birds, the majority being blue tits (Blåmejse), which Jonas had the pleasure to practice his ringing on. Jørgen joined us with Igor, as well as Berit.

The jewel bird of the morning was a beautiful magpie (Husskade) we caught in the last net on the last round. It was the first magpie for the station, and the first one I've ever handled and ringed! We were all quite happy with this catch!

When we came back in the afternoon, we relaxed. Then Michaela and Jonas went to the cormorant (Skarv) collony, however no nesting cormorants were present there. After that, they took the bikes to the city and also went to the store for some food. 

Back at the station, I made onion soup and Daniel baked bread for dinner! The rest of the evening we spent entering ringing data and raptor summary.
