What does the wind bring?

søndag 14. april 2024
af Simon Kiesé

Good morning, I can hear an alarm.

I wake up and I feel that my arm

does not hurt as much as before,

it's getting better, I am sure!


With 17 meters out of west,

many birds decide to rest.

The count is slow, there is no ringing,

We wonder what is the weather bringing?


Some Arctic Skuas (Almindelig Kjove) are on the move,

every day brings highlights - this is the proof.

But we stay and we are focussed,

a Black Kite (Sort Glente) is the closest.


Then Alex found a Great Skua (Storkjove) (tak!),

it's the first this year I am sure.

And when Magnus finally sees it,

it is for him a new species. (Congrats!!)


The sea is still very rough,

this looks so great, I'm in love!

Even if the wind was going through and through,

We were sheltered enough to enjoy this great view:

The others had a nice sleep,

then they went into office work very deep.

Luckily it came to Hayleys mind,

to go to check the tent in the wind.


Isis went for a walk to the city,

some streets are closed, it is a pity.

This forced her to go another way back,

she found a Short-eared Owl (Mosehornugle) - it was worth the check!


While the wind made us to bird unable,

diligent board members sat at the table.

They discussed everything what they need

and finished theire meeting, the suceed'.

Last but not least, you can see

a historical moment, where we

see who is the strongest

it's Magnus, he carries the stone the longest:
