A total of 41 birds identified into 8 species. None of them was caught with the Helgoland trap (Blåvandrusen).
Over all there is a huge different with the catching numbers on both gardens. Maybe it will change. Today more birds (25) were caught at the Fyrhaven.
First of the season common house martin (Delichon urbicum- Bysvalen - Mehlschwalbe) was seen today. A female western marsh harrier (Circus aeruginosus – Rørhøg - Rohrweihe) was seen too.
We always look up to the sky. But it is worse to look down on the ground for a very close look. Otherwise you could miss out on something.
