The day after...
Today the SE winds disrupted the standardised ringing for another morning. However, we opened a select few (well-sheltered) nets at the station garden. We ringed a couple of new birds, among them a Song Thrush – the first for the season. It was followed by a Siskin, Dunnock and Goldcrest. We also recaptured a Robin ringed last week, which increased in weight from 16 to 17g. This healthy bird could have been the ringed Robin I observed having a bath by the station yesterday afternoon. Leona also observed a Firecrest close by the nets during one of the net rounds!
This morning the counters had less birds moving than yesterday. They did manage to spot the White-tailed Eagles, with one sitting on the beach and others on nearby sand dunes. During the count they also saw a Red deer flock (c.60) in the swamp area within the military area.
The wind decreased sufficiently by mid-afternoon and should remain moderate at around 8 m/s until tomorrow morning, when we hope to continue with more bird ringing. Unfortunately it will my last day here in Blåvand, until my next visit this season!
