Fail day but fun day
Today was the extra catching day: Angela and I opened the Water pipit (Bjergpiber) nets between world end 3 and world end 2 with the nets that we set up yesterday.
On the other side of the dune, Robbie, Amandine and Rosalina set up the wooshnet trying to catch some Snow Buntings (Snespurv) while observing with Knud. Unfortunately, none of us succeed today although we tried different strategies with recording calls, I hope tomorrow will be successful!
However, the highlights of the observations were a Black Guillemot (Tejst) and flocs of Razorbills (Alk) and Guillemots (Lomvie).
During the afternoon, as usual, we opened the nets in the lighthouse garden, trying to catch local birds that are coming to feed. We caught one Yellowhammer (Gulspurv) which was a female born last spring. The rest of the day was based on sewing nets, office work and another try to catch some birds for Robbie who was really close to catch a Purple Sandpiper (Sortgrå Ryle) and an Oystercatcher (Strandskade).
