Make Lucas Batman (or introducing the new volunteer to ringing at Kabeltromlen)

søndag 16. juni 2024

Finally, the standardized counting period is over, but Magnus was keen enough to go out for an additional count. There was not much migration – this proofes, why it makes sense to end the standardized count in summer. Otherwise there are still birds you don’t want to miss. One of them was an Arctic Skua (Almindelig Kjove) and Magnus also found a Black Tern (Sortterne).

It was the first morning for Lucas to join us ringing at Kabeltromlen. It was an average late June day without many surprises but we appreciated the Acrocephalus Warblers in anyway. Our goal now is to make Lucas (who arrived yesterday) Batman. That means, we have to teach him everything we know about out tasks and the station, that he can share it with the summer team, because everyone except him leavs the station on the first of July. Lucas is doing really good, so he will easily manage that!

 16062024 SK blog 4Look at this nice Reed Warbler (Rørsanger). The warm rump color is typical for this species.

My highlight might have been a family of young Chiffchaffs (Gransanger), we had ringed a few days ago and which made its way into our nets again. They were all in good condition! When a rain shower came, we closed and headed back to the station.

While we keep the station running, Simon Sr. is on vacation right now. He really earned some calm and fun days after working like twenty hours per day for the entire season without weekends or days off. It seems like his trip is fun, since they got a look on the Pygmy Cormorant (Dværgskarv) in southern Denmark. Funnily they met Søren – our guest from the past two weeks – there.

In the afternoon our new guests arrived and we did office work as soon as we finished our nap.
