A total of 26 birds identified into 13 species. None of them was caught with the Helgoland trap (Blåvandrusen).
Till now 661 birds were caught. Around one-third (219) of them were caught at the Fyrhaven and two-third (442) at the Stationhaven. This is a huge different to the years before where both gardens had caught roughly the same number of birds. Maybe the change of the vegetation could be a reason?
Just in front of us at the car park area the Dansk Militært Idrætsforbund (DMI) had a running event.
