A new for the season

fredag 13. maj 2022
af Menno den Uijl

Today was quite slow, just like the past few days. When I complained to David and Bello about it, the next round finally had some birds including a nice dark male Pied flycatcher. We also had a new species for the season, meadow pipit. When I tried to show it to David and Bello, I forgot in which bag I had put it in. Hence I gambled two times wrong, luckily I was not in the casino.

The parents of Mikkel came by today, they are in the area for a few days. Although there were not that many birds, they could witness the processing of three birds.

For next week southeastern winds are predicted, so hopefully another subalpine warbler will be in the nets here.
