A few birds and a new/old volunteer

tirsdag 2. august 2022
af Alice Scalzo
Nathan and Max went to open the nets this morning and were joined by Simon to ring.
WhatsApp_Image_2022-08-02_at_16.52.45.jpegThey had quite a decent ringing day but had to close early. They got a Chaffinch (Bogfinke), and two Sedge warblers (Sivsanger). Many waders passed by, and so they heard among others a Spotted redshank (Sortklire). 
WhatsApp_Image_2022-08-02_at_16.52.4.jpegEast of them, at the tip, was Benjamin, his uncle, and I sitting for morning observations. We got some juvenile Black guillemots (Tejst), an Arctic skua (Almindelig Kjove), a Kittiwake (Ride), the last two being new birds for Benjamin !, and a few waders in the first hours. Unfortunately there was little more. Today was not a migration day, but the sight of more than 200 Gannets (Sule) fishing in front of us made it worthwhile.
As you know we lost a team member yesterday, Martina left already. But today we are gaining a new volunteer, Robbie who had been here already, and will stay for 3 weeks. He traveled here from England.
In the afternoon it was bike cleaning for all of us, and computer work (entering data, making a new guideline, checking sheets).
The weather looks uncertain, but we might be able to do some night catching tonight ! Let's hope for more nice species.
Have a good evening,
Alice.
