Grå dag med SØ-vind

fredag 18. oktober 2019
Storpiber og lapværling trak forbi.
af Michael Brunhøj Hansen, Lisa Flam

Det var en grå morgen med småregn nu og da, og det var ret blæsende fra sydøst; dog bød dagen på en del trækkende fugle. Der kom over 30 bjergvipstjerter, 1 lapværling og 1 storpiber, dagens fugl. Herudover blev det til et fircifret antal bogfinker/kvækerfinker samt lidt over et halvt hundrede antal stære. Der kom også en ringdrosselhan der landede i Fyrhaven, men det lykkedes den at undvige nettene.

Det var overvejende ederfuglene der dominerede over havet. Ellers kom der pibeænder, toppede skalleslugere, skarver og enkelte rødstrubede lommer.

Vi er ikke så mange mennesker på stationen her til aften, og Felttræffet sluttede officielt i dag. Simon og Gunnar Sigaard skal overnatte her, og her til aften var vi, sammen med Lisa og Mogens, på Grønningen for at fange bekkasiner. Lisa gik med et net, Simon med lygte og jeg med en kasse til at holde fuglen i. Der var godt nok fugle i området, bl.a. 3 enkeltbekkasiner blev trådt op, men der blev ikke fanget noget i denne omgang. Ikke desto mindre var det sjovt at prøve.

I morgen skulle vinden blive op til omkring 12 m/s fra sydvest, så det kommer til at stå på havobs i morgen. Nettene bliver nok ikke åbnet i morgen, i hvert fald ikke alle.


Lisa Flam:

It was a long fun day with a lot of visitors and birds all around.

Yesterday looking at the weather forecast it didn’t seem too promising and so I was happy to wake up for a pretty dry day!
I enjoyed the company of Simon that joined me today, he had the patience and desire to teach me new things that I am always appreciative of. It’s always a pleasure to work with talented ringers.

We had a nice variety of birds but nothing too special; the interesting thing for us today was having 20 goldcrests (fuglekonger), the ones caught in the Lighthouse Garden were 90% female, the ones caught in the Station Garden were 90% male.
Also found a difference between species with the fat score- most Robins (rødhalse) seemed to have a lot of fat, as opposed to the Bramblings (kvækerfinker) that had no fat at all.

The last few days I feel the need to be out more, go bird watching as well as ringing. The weather is changing and it is getting more windy and rainy, so I feel I should be taking advantage of the good days out here.

Later on Simon and Gunnar prepared an amazing dinner for us before going out on another adventure.

Tommorow isn't looking like a good ringing day. I hope to wake up and be wrong.
