My last ringing day here

søndag 3. juli 2022
And my first caspian tern here
af Menno den Uijl




Today the wind was better for migration than the last days, and the black headed gulls decided to go south with plenty. With over 4000 counted I was kept busy with the black headed gulls. Next to that there were a little amount of waders. But the highlight was a Caspian Tern flying on eyelevel. After missing all the other caspian terns in this year, I was really exicted seeing this species here. In the Netherlands I only saw caspian terns resting, so seeing it fly up close was a real joy!
 

The ringing was very slow, but with some juveniles was nice to ring again. The first birds of the autumn have been caught!
