A poetic duck day

mandag 13. november 2023
af Simon Kiesé

It was still dark,

we were on our way,

with Knud to Nordstrand,

for a four-hour-stay.


Even at the most sheltered spot,

It was pretty cold,

If Gustav would have offered Mulled Wine,

It would've been directly sold.


Geese (Gås) and Whooper Swans (Sangsvane) were passing by,

some flew low and some flew high.

Soon the clickers were on fire - 

and the numbers just got higher.


Many Goosander, in danish Stor Skalleslugger - 

We stayed there sitting in the cold - I tell you - we are not out of sugar.

The total numbers were very nice

and we also had many Goldeneyes (Hvinand).


In the meanwhile at KAB,

Thomas and Mathilde were out to see

How many birds there are to catch -

To ring them in our local patch.


A Bluetit (Blåmejse) and some more came,

"They are biting us" - it is a shame.

The coldness made them feel sleepier -

Three lovely nordish Treecreeper (Træløber)!

After a nice lunch break - 

Thomas was sleeping, the rest of us was awake.

Gustav thought about catching a snake.

Then we went shopping before it's getting too late.


It is Gustav's turn for cooking tonight,

The pizza is shining in the oven so bright.

Now I end this blog, we are very hungry now.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed the show!
