Første Løvsanger dag

Today, all the nets were open but one. As it has been calm for the last days and wind forecast didn't seem to change that much, Andreas decided we could handle all the nets and see how it would go.  Everything went just fine and with an entertaining three busy rounds where we didn't have time for coffee in between.
Highlights of the ringing: First Willow Warbler of the season and one new Firecrest.

Today was also the day to try the new boxes for the first time that are being made for Gedser Fuglestation. Drafted from an old prototype that Hans made with some tweaks that Andreas brought from Ottenby. They are a gift to the station by Ole Skytte. Andreas was just so happy of how well they work for our little garden. Thank you Ole !

Since the beginning of the day, Andreas has had the information that thrushes, including Ring Ouzel, could be in the area and a few White-winged Snowfinches have been seen in Poland and Germany in the last days migrating up North. Ambitious it might have been, but we were hoping and paying attention, and at least one Ring Ouzel was actually seen just north to the station!
Later in the day some Sanderlings were seen flying close to the shore as well as some migrating Eiders, Barnacle Geese and also an Osprey.

Tomorrow Hans and Benny will come by to show some ringing for visitors.
