Good news again

lørdag 2. juli 2022
af Menno den Uijl

On this sunny, but windy day the migration was not that good with northwestern winds. There were only a handfull of waders, some comorants and ducks kept me a bit busy. 

After the count I walked to the little tern colony and I could see three fledged young litte terns and one big young. That is fantastic news and hopefully the fence will be there the coming years as well. Bent really wanted to see it as well for himself and could discover two more fledged little terns. Already great news if you consider that most young still need to fledge. I am curious how many terns will fledge from the colony inside the fence. The ringed plovers also bred succesfully and some young ones are wondering around now as well. Unfortunately, I leave before the terns go back to Africa but it was really worth the effort of putting and mantaining the fence up.

Tomorrow there are some possibilities for me to ring some birds after the seawatch. '
