As per usual, Michael and I had the nets open at Kabeltromlen for sunrise and were later joined by Oluf Lou and our newest volunteer Chloé, who arrived last night after a mega 16 hour drive from France. We had a more productive morning than the last few days catching 24 new birds including a young, male Spurvehøg (Sparrowhawk), our 7th Skovsanger (Wood Warbler) of the spring and a surprise Grønsisken (Sisken).

Dante joined Erik Christophersen in the outer dunes for morning observations. Their highlights today included an adult Mellemkjove (Pomarine Skua), 1 Topskarv (Shag), 2 Islom (Great Northern Diver) and 1 Pirol (Golden Oriole). We all spent the afternoon tidying up the station after the all the excitement of the Bird Festival as well as catching up with entering data. We also welcomed our new guests to the apartment, Søren and Karen Marie, who we’re very much looking forward to ringing and observing with this week.
