Another busy morning!

Plenty of birds around in the garden today as there have been for the past few days, 141 birds banded and many more flying overhead. Not so many Robins (Rødhals) in the nets as the past few days but more Goldcrests (Fuglekong) and Chiffchaffs (Gransanger), and quite a few Song Thrush (Sangdrossel) as well.

We were also visited by a højskolen group who were shown ringing demonstrations by Hans and were also lucky enough to see a Sparrowhawk (Spurvhøg).

The highlight of the morning was a Short-toed Treecreeper (Korttåede Træløber) which was ringed alongside a recaptured Eurasian Treecreeper (Træløber) giving us a good opportunity to compare the two species.

Sadly our Danish teacher Andreas left us this afternoon to return to Jutland. Thanks to him, Abbi and I can now can say most of our ringing measurements in Dansk! Although we're still having trouble with the number 30...
