Little in the nets with raptors overhead.

Very windy again today forcing a limited meterage of 79 meters. We stayed open all morning but only processed eight birds, two of which were retrapped.

One of the female Sparrowhawks (Spurvehog) was in its second year.

With such a low count for the garden, we had to look slightly further afield for some birds in the afternoon. We started at the tip where there was little happening on the sea, but some raptors were turning up, including two Peregrine (Vanderfalk) and a Red-footed Falcon (Aftenfalk), although several did not actually set off across the sea.

We went into Gedser for a few groceries and checked the surrounding fields on our way back seeing several Sparrowhawk (Spervehog) and Kestrel (Tårnfalk), three Honey Buzzards (Hvespsevåge) and two Osprey (Fiskeørn) travelling towards the tip as well as a resting Wheatear (Stenpikker).

This is our lowest total for some time. Catching conditions have to improve soon.
