A quiet windy day
Today only a very limited amount of nets could be opened. This was mainly because of the strong winds. There were almost no birds around the garden, except from the local Tree sparrows and Redpolls. This resulted in one of the worst days at the station with only two recaptures. To make it even worse, Morten saw a sparrowhawk escape the net.
Out at sea, Henrik and David had a productive day with a great northern diver, two artic skuas and a yellow legged gull. In the afternoon, Bello also saw an artic skua.
Because it was a slow day, Morten was able to make some delicious Goulash.
We all enjoyed it. Hopefully, the very windy coming days can bring in some nice seabirds.
