Lots of sunshine

But still not warm in the morning!

Bird ringing:

2 Eurasian wren (Troglodytes troglodytes – Gærdesmutte - Zaunkönig),
1 European robin (Erithacus rubecula - Rødhals – Rotkehlchen),
1 Common redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus – Rødstjert - Gartenrotschwanz),
5 common blackbirds (Turdus merula - Sunsort - Amseln),
2 song thrushes (Turdus philomelos - Sangdrossel – Singdrossel),
2 Eurasian blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla – Munk - Mönchsgrasmücke),
6 common chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita – Gransanger - Zilpzalp),
1 willow warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus - Løvsanger - Fitis).
1 goldcrest (Regulus regulus – Fuglekonge – Wintergoldhähnchen),

1 common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs - Bogfinken - Buchfink),
3 European greenfinch (Chloris chloris – Grønirisk - Grünfink).

A total of 26 birds identified into 12 species. None of them was caught with the Helgoland trap (Blåvandrusen).

The first willow warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus - Løvsanger - Fitis) of the season was caught. And lovely to have the Common redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus – Rødstjert - Gartenrotschwanz) found in the net. Maybe it was the same spottet yesterday?

A weasel (væsel - Wiesel) crossed the road and entered the parking space at the station. It was spotted from the Eurasian tree sparrows (Passer montanus – Skovspurv - Feldsperling) immediately. So the weasel turned back and crossed the road again. Followed by the tree sparrows with their alarm calls.
