Norwegian Blackcap and busy scoter passage

onsdag 5. maj 2021

Both the ringing and seawatching observations produced some exciting results today. Despite somewhat windy conditions and some light rain the nets still produced a single 1st summer male Pied Flycatcher (Broget fluesnapper, Ficedula hypoleuca) and a Norwegian control female Blackcap (Munk, Sylvia atricapilla)!

Highlights from the seawatch include 1 Red-necked Grebe (Gråstrubet lappedykker, Podiceps grisegena) migrating northwards, 4040 Common Scoter (Sortand, Melanitta nigra), and 158 Velvet Scoter (Fløjsand, Melanitta fusca). Interestingly, the latter often seem to migrate in a different direction relative to the Common Scoters (Sortand, Melanitta nigra) and rarely in association with other species.

The seawatch totals can be seen in full on DOFbasen here.

The skinner moth trap was active again last night and caught Early Grey (Gedeblad-Ugle, Xylocampa areola), Powdered Quaker (Grå Forårsugle, Orthosia gracilis), Hebrew Character (Gotisk Forårsugle, Orthosia gothica), Oblique Striped (Snerremåler, Phibalapteryx virgata), and Nutmeg (Bedeugle, Anarta trifolii).
