We’re up at the crack of dawn to head to the CES site this morning. We meet Morten Christensen on site and got set up and ready by 5am. It was a very slow morning with less than 15 birds ringed or processed during 6 hours. It was horrifically hot, however, and this may have influenced bird movement.
We packed up at 11am after the standard 6 hours and I returned the keys to Michael Ancher, who very kindly offered me a cold coke. We spent a pleasant half hour chatting and enjoying the shade in his garden, before I dragged myself back to the observatory. On return to the observatory, we made sure we stayed out of the sun for a few hours after 6 hours in the beating sun on the morning.
Our friend and local Anders Bojesen, kindly invited us to dinner in the evening, a superb vegetable lasagne with an excellent ice cream and caramel sauce dessert. It was a very nice evening and a good way to relax after the long hot morning.
