Water rail and a Grey Phalarope
Today it was a good day for both ringing and observing, so Augustin and Knud met at World’s end 3 this morning whereas Justine and Rosalina went opening nets and me, Robbie, Simon, Kirsten and Line joined them for the first round.
Even though the wind was a bit strong, we had some more Bearded tits (Skægmejse) which made Robbie really happy.. but the highlight of the day was definitely a Water rail (Vandrikse) that was waiting for us in one of the nets in the Southern part ! It was an exciting day for Line who got to see many new bird species up close and came out on the rounds with us, which she enjoyed very much. Kirsten is very optimistic for tomorrow, so we all hope her wishes come true.
Augustin and Knud spotted a Grey Phalarope (Torshane), some Great skuas (Storskjove), two Fulmars (Mallemuk) and a Great grey shrike ( Stor Tornskade).
When we came back there was a bright shining sun who invited us for a cold and regenerating swim just in front on the Lighthouse! That felt very good.. and luckily a warm shower was waiting for us back home.
In the afternoon, after a nice lunch all together, we showed Line how we enter data on Dofbasen and Fuglering and then me and Justine went cycling to the forest to look for mushrooms, but instead enjoyed the view of many beautiful deers under the sunset´s light.
