Exciting Day

tirsdag 13. oktober 2020
af Amelie Zeller

So, like Christina already told you, we had a nice evening yesterday. Henning guided a lovely night tour for a big group of people. I’ve never seen the birder’s club this crowded before! We walked to Grenen and could see some Seals, an Eider (Ederfugl), Sanderlings (Sandløber) and Jeppe and I even saved a fish that was lying on the side at the beach. It was still alive, and we could see it swimming again after I carried it back into the sea. I also introduced Jeppe to nightcatching with a net and a torch, but the group of people on the tour was too big, so the birds were easily scared away…

Then, this morning Christina, Jeppe and I opened the nets at Kabeltromlen. We had a good day and our highlights were a Blackcap (Munk) recapture from Belgium, a flock of 26 Twites (Bjergirisk) and in our closing round we had a Jay (Skovskade) in our nets. Although my hand was bleeding afterwards, it was such an amazing experience to ring this beautiful bird.

He was very excited, as it was his first time ever to join a ringing station and he really enjoyed seeing the birds this close and having the nice working athmosphere in our “outdoor office”, like Oluf calls it.

In the afternoon we showed Jeppe the lab and where we keep all the items we need at the ringing station. Then, we entered today’s data. Jeppe already saw a lot today and is eager to learn and help us!

Kristina and her boyfriend Mads were here today and also brought their dog Aslan, which is always a nice surprise. They cooked a delicious meal for us and we had some great talks at the dinner table.

Tonight, Kristina and Jeppe guided another night tour again. They had a lot of visitors and tried to spot some animals.
