A new ringer as summer time begins
The month ended with fitting March 2019 conditions, i.e. too much wind! Birding along the coast provided some close views of regular species including quite a few Common Gulls (Stormmåge) and Black-headed Gulls (Hættemåge). 3 Red-throated Divers (Rødstrubet Lom) and plenty of Common Scoter (Sortand) were rafting just off the shore too. A Black-throated Diver (Sortstrubet Lom) and some Velvet Scoter (Fløjlsand) were observed further out at sea.
Although it was not feasible to carry out the standard ringing today, we do have an important ringer-related update, one which brings great experience and company to the station. Morten Jenrich Hansen arrived this afternoon and will be working here for the rest of the spring season!
