Black-headed Gull passage

lørdag 17. juli 2021
af Samuel Perfect

The early morning check of the moth trap yielded 122 moths of 58 species, not bad returns given the strong northerly wind overnight. One year tick was present, a Confused (Mørk Stængelugle, Apamea furva).

The morning seawatch, although low in diversity, certainly made up for its shortcomings with high numbers of both gulls and terns, the highest counts were awarded to Black-headed Gull (Hættemåge, Chroicocephalus ridibundus) with 3574 mostly flying north and 930 CommonTern/Arctic Tern (Fjordterne/Havterne, Sterna hirundo/Sterna paradisaea), the highest count of the autumn so far! Even by the time I left, the passage of Black-headed Gulls was still in full swing!
