A Slow Day in Good Company

onsdag 1. november 2023
af Joseph Stephan

The weather today was unpleasant, with a wind speed of 7 m/s from the southeast and intermittent rain showers. The migration was quite slow today, but we still saw 2820 Starlings (Staer) and eleven Sparrowhawks (Spurvehög). You can find a comprehensive list of all observations here.

Due to the bad weather, only the nets in the station garden were set up, where we caught 15 birds, including a Great Spotted Woodpecker (Stor Flagspaette), which arguably was the bird of the day.

While Didrik, Lovis, and Louis went to Nymindegab to twitch a Ring-necked Duck (Halsbåndstroldand), Liva baked some delicious brownies, which all of us enjoyed to the fullest. Afterwards, Antonia and Felix prepared a mouthwatering Chili con Carne for dinner, while Anton, Liva, and I watched "The Mask," one of the best movies ever made.

We went to bed happy and grateful, looking forward to tomorrow, when we will face another great day at the Fuglestation.
