Mosquitoes everywhere

søndag 19. juni 2022

Today Alice went out in the morning to go on a walk to Grenen taking some pictures at the beach. She managed to take some really nice pictures of terns fishing in the sea.

Afterwards Alice and I went out in the lighthouse garden to put up some nets and cut the gras. There were sooo many mosquitos! There were even more than at Kabletromlen! So we had a fierce fight with them. Our jeans were hard to bite through and after equipping ourselves with mosquito hats and repellant they weren't able to conquer us, still they were quite persistent.

Simon came back to the station to check ringing sheets with us and discuss some plans for the coming days.

Megan worked in birders club, she is nearly done with the welcome package for volunteers and the scavanger hunt for the birders club. While she was doing that people came in and she had some nice chats with other bird enthusiasts.

Hanelie was preparing the nightjar bag for our excursion to Sandmilen tomorrow, we are already really excited for the nightjar catching! She then took care of the picture archive, updated the freezer list and then checked the ringing sheets together with Simon.

While she was doing that I did some groceries in the city to get the last ingredients for the Dinner we will have tomorrow with the people from the exhibition. After dinner I already created a nice dessert for tomorrow and Alice helped me with that.

Also today our two new Guests arrived in the late afternoon. Before coming here they saw a Red kite in the area of Skagen.

Have a nice Evening,

Leona
