Stær, stillits og gråsisken ...

... var blandt de ringmærkede fugle.

Vinden var svag og fra en nordøstlig retning. Der var flere der mødte op til morgenobsen, så vi var en overgang 7 i alt, herunder bl.a. Knud Pedersen fra Skagen. Da vinden var i nordøst, og fordi vejret var meget klart og rimelig skyfrit, fik vi ikke set mange fugle som har det med at trække højt i medvind. Der kom dog nogle ænder og gæs, 31 rødstrubede lommer; dagens fugl blev en trækkende havlit, den første i dette efterår.

Fordi vinden også var svag, blev der ikke presset mange småfugle herud, men der kom dog bl.a. 4 bjergvipstjerter. Vi havde hertil. af rovfugle, 4 spurvehøge samt 1 ung blå kærhøg.

Efter morgenobsen gik jeg med på nogle netrunder og fik taget fugle ud af nettene. Det bliver efterhånden lettere og lettere, og Lisa går meget op i at jeg gør tingene korrekt, så jeg skal nok blive dygtig!

I morgen ser ud til at blive en af de gode dage, for vinden skal nemlig komme fra sydøst og være noget kraftigere end den var i dag, og det skal holde tørt og klart; morgenen bliver dog nok temmelig kølig ... Så vi forbereder os på mange fugle!

Home, sweet home!

I joined my family for a 2-day trip to Copenhagen, enjoyed every minute, but couldn’t wait to be back here. It made me realize how much I love Blåvand. David picked me up last evening and I was finally back.

I’m still waiting for the Yellow-browed Warbler (hvidbrynet løvsanger), but I had some nice species that I was waiting to see (and ring!)

The weather seemed promising, NE wind, no rain, a bit too cold for me (can't wait to see myself handle cold November!) but not that many birds, maybe the wind was too weak.

The sunrise today was unbelievably beautiful, I love that that part of this job forces us to see the sunrises everyday.

While ringing the birds from the first round, I saw a flock of Starlings (stære) flying back-and-forth above the nets and I knew I’ll catch at least 1, next round we had 2! First time for me ringing them. I will say this, they are very noisy and STINKY! But it was worth it. What a beautiful bird!

At 10:00 we had a Lesser Redpoll (lille gråsisken) (my first one, ask Bent how excited I was) and the first Goldfinch (stillits) for the season. It seems they are uncommon in the nets: last autumn 5, in 2016 only 1! Maybe we will be lucky this autumn?

Michael is learning how to extract birds from the net and he has improved a lot! He joins pretty much every day for the last hours of ringing and his hard work is paying off! I feel proud. 😊

I had a lot of help throughout the day, thanks everyone! It is so good to be back home.
