Yet, another blustery day here at Gedser. The winds were strong and there was a damp mist hanging in the air all morning. We still managed to catch a few birds, about 30 or so. The goldcrests (fuglekonge) have more or less dissipated, while there still are a few robins (rødhals) and wrens (gærdesmutte) hanging around. Joe and I each banded our first redpoll (gråsisken) which, was not a new bird for the season, but still was exciting for us!
It is Anders and Heidi's last night at the station. Tonight we shared some pictures of some of the North American birds we banded at Long Point, and Heidi made us a special Danish cake! (It was so sweet and delicious that I have gone into a slight food coma) It pains us to see them go, they have been awesome to work with and we could not have asked for better roommates! We wish them the best on their next journeys, and hopefully our paths will cross again (in Australia perhaps?)!
We have our fingers crossed for an owl tonight, maybe a new species?! What better way for Heidi and Anders to spend their last night?
