Observations and fyrhavn ringing
Me and Mathilde went out for some trækfugletælling this morning along Grenen, with high winds there were hopes for some nice birds but after three hours and moving to shelter near the bunker during the small rain shower we had, we left with some good counts of the usual birds including over 130 Gannets (Sule) fishing offshore and the roosting eiders. We ten came home and napped as is the usual daily routine and woke up tog et on with some chores around the station. I went to the nets at Kabletromlen with a hedge trimmer and did some maintenance around the nets to keep them clear and did some archive updating on the computer. Mathilde made pancakes for the mornings ringing and cleaned the stairs. We also opened the nets in the fyrhavn this evening to try and catch the local wagtails (Vipstjerts) and new black redstart juveniles (Husrødstjert) we had some good success compared to previous attempts using these nets with one retrap Hvidvipstjert and 2 new juvenile Husrødstjert and whilst closing the nets had a really nice surprise of a juvenile Barn Swallow (Landsvale) which was really nice to see. I helped Kirsten with some aging of birds using our picture archive and she joined us for the ringing of the birds caught downstairs and was happy to release them with their new accessories.
Ringing tomorrow with Simon hopes for Arctic warbler so hopefully we update with one of those tomorrow !
