It was raining a bit this morning when Leona and I woke up, prepared to go out to open the nets. But the unstable weather made it a bit risky for ringing so with Oluf we decided that we wouldn't open the nets today. At least we could all enjoy a few more hours of sleep. Manuel still went out in the morning. Unfortunately he didn't see never the Red-breasted Flycatcher (Lille Fluesnapper) or the Bluethroat (Blåhals). He took care of some paperwork and then came the big cleaning session in which we all participated to make the station perfectly clean. He also put the recorder out and cooked dinner, delicious as always !
Robbe worked most of the day on his university project but took small walks and saw a Great northern diver (Islom) over the garden, he went to the secret lake with Hanelie and there they found lots of nice flowers. Leona made scrambled eggs for us in the morning, she was on raptor summary duty, but also got the time to go to the beach. Her parents will be staying in skagen for a few days.
I took the chance to do some paperwork and spent the rest of the day drawing and painting.
In the afternoon Leona and I went groceries shopping with our guests.
Our guests went to the art museum, they loved it and found it fantastic. They were Aalmost crying with emotion at the end of the tour. Afterwards they went to Hulsig, and in just five minutes they had the botted eagle ! They also saw the Golden and Steppe eagle. Karen Marie went to do the point counts and saw three different lizards while Søren drove us to shopping. It was their last full day in Skagen, they were very happy to be here and spend a week with the local birders and us.
Simon spent the day at the natur meeting, he opened owl pellets with children, and got a price and with cup as a reward.
