Today, Sandra and Christian only joined Henrik at around 7 o’clock, but we have already missed 4 Arctic Skuas by then. So far, it has been the best day for them (since we came here), with a total of 9 birds within the three hours of counting. Otherwise, the migration was extremely slow and stopped nearly entirely around 8 o’clock. However, while checking the gulls, we found a Yellow-legged Gull and at least four different Caspian Gulls, one of which had a colour ring Henrik was able to read (ringed in Hiddensee, Germany in 2013). So, even when the day might look slow for some species, others are still nice to watch :). Additionally, for most of the counting period, we had nice company of Søren, who made sure we counted correctly :). As it was Sandra’s last full day, we decided to take a creative goodbye-picture of three counters today, while Sandra remains, metaphorically speaking, as a shadow (Her shadow is the waving one).
So, from tomorrow on, Christian will write the blog on his own, so I hope, I can keep up with the creativity of the pictures :). Stay tuned,
Sandra & Christian
