Luxury is a thing of the past

So, Wareing, James Wareing, also known as Athletic James, has unfortunately migrated south, which is a bit reversed compared to the birds' usual migration pattern. Sometimes the German/Danish humor can be quite a mouthful - even for an undercover agent like James.

After a nice dinner, during which Simon (SK) showcased his talent as the chef, we decided to make use of the access we had to my car before my younger brother picked it up. Firstly, we went to “Brænderpasset” - a quite well-known location for birders in Skagen. Disappointingly, the fog made it impossible to see anything in the thermal camera.

The third spot - which is located at the southernmost part of Hulsig Hede, is also one of my favorite nature spots on Skagen Odde. Sadly, the fog completely shattered our hopes of seeing anything.

The next day, we woke up at 06:15 for bird observation in cold conditions, but with weaker wind than the day before. Therefore, the day turned out to be pretty good from a birder's perspective, with good numbers of both Razorbills and Guillemots in Kattegat. My family also came to visit the bird observatory. They brought a surprise with them, namely my nature-sensei, Hugo, who was teaching me to go looking for species in nature.

Ringing (Jennes Sø):

Nordlig Gråsisken (Mealy Redpoll) - 14
Grønirisk (Greenfinch) - 1
Solsort (Blackbird) - 1

Total: 16
