A night full of surprises !

mandag 1. august 2022

Hello everyone !

Very early this morning, and thanks to Alice's efforts, we caught 2 Red Knots on the beach near the lighthouse ! It was very exciting for everyone to be able to see from so close a bird we are used to see through the scope.

Soon after, Martina and I went to open the nets while Max went observing on the beach. Simon joined later accompanied by Benjamin who is going to help us during this week. Benjamin is 13 years old danish boy who has been introduced to birding by his uncle and wanted to learn more about ringing with us. We managed to catch and ring a beautiful spotted flycatcher ! A bit later, Alice joined to help us despite the fact that she worked all night.

After that, we went back to the station and it was time for Martina to pack her bag and go back to Germany to prepare her classes. We deeply thank her for all the work she has done for the Fuglestation and also for all the valuable knowledge she transmitted to other volunteers.

That is it for today, we wish you a great evening and we will see each other tomorrow for more exciting news about birds !
