My first day at the station and the first Woodcock of the season

lørdag 2. marts 2024

Today was my first day at the bird station! Over the course of the day a handful of birds were caught and since it was not to busy Morten had all the time to show me the ropes. There were two recaptures: a Eurasian Wren (Gærdesmutte) and a Goldcrest (Fuglekonge). The new captures of the day were a Dunnock (Jernspurv), Common Blackbird (Solsort) and most notably a Woodcock (Skovsneppe), which was the first bird I ever held in my own hands!

In the morning between checking the nets I took the time to climb the watchtower to get a good view of the area and later in the afternoon the sun was shining, so I went for a walk over the beach and watched some Sandlings (Sandløber) foraging and in the dunes I was accompanied by the songs of Eurasian Skylarks (Sanglærke).

If my first day was any sign, then I am sure I will be having a great time here at the bird station.
