The weather was pleasant today, with temperatures around 15 degrees and plenty of sunshine. The wind came from the east, with speeds reaching up to 7 m/s.

The morning observation was somewhat slow today, but they still spotted 337 Eider Ducks (Ederfugl), 330 Jackdaws (Allike), and 3040 Starlings (Staer). You can find a comprehensive list of all observations here.

Anton, Antonia, and I had the nets open all day and caught 173 birds, including four Song Thrushes (Sangdrossel), three Bramblings (Kvaerkerfinke), three Blackbirds (Solsort), and four Coal Tits (Sortmejse).

After a long day, Louis prepared a delicious pasta for dinner, which we all enjoyed to the fullest. We taught each other German and Danish, shared hearty laughs, and then retired to our well-deserved beds.
