Today Bent was out for the ringing and he will be this in the near future.
David Manstrup and Henrik Böhmer had a very good morning with bird monitoring. They spotted a yellow-billed loon (Gavia adamsii, also known as the white-billed diver - hvidnæbbede lom – Gelbschnabeltaucher). A Eurasian sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus – Spurvehøg -Sperber) passed by as I was talking to them.
