Slightly better weather today. #105 (IOM 95) a few flocks of Stock Doves (Columbo oenas) were migrating today.   I dont see many terns on the Island so here is an EBC. #106 (I

I seem to be on a roll with the EBC`s At the ponds of the old Sugarfactory. First a warning sign    Grønbenet Rørhøne = Eurasian Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) # 107 (IOM 97) in

Today it was time for some gardening. Luckily I kept binoculars and camera close by. The Island is not known for its autumn migration but occasionnally the wind brings the birds in this direction

Quite cold and windy today so I went to the park/forest next to the Estate.

#68 (IOM 55) Goosander (Mergus merganser)

Very common in winter with about 20,000 birds in Denmark but less than 100 breeding pairs with almost all of them in the Southern part of the country.

Locally there are several pairs.

#69 (IOM 56) Marsh Tit (Poecile palstris)

Very busy feeding and hard to get a good photo.

@GalanaIt was quiet the whole time so 100% ID not possible but Willow Tit would be extremely unlikely in this part of Denmark

@Galana  Fred, I just wanted to get ahead of you trying to question the ID of the Marsh Tit:D

On Pine Cones I'd think Coal Tit is a strong possibility.

@Dave Williamsthank you for the input. Personally I am quite sure it is a Marsh Tit. I agree that it would be typical behaviour for a Coal Tit.

Next one is an EBC. They are not uncommon it is just that I dont see them very often:rolleyes:

# 71 (IOM 59) Linnet (Linaria cannabina)

as I was entering above one of the garden birds was making a lot of noise.

Just outside our house shot with an I-Phone through some very old windows (two layers of glass but not double glazed)

Unedited.

yet another windy day

#74 (IOM 62) Brent Goose (Branta bernicla)

Not easy to get good focus with the strong wind and the waves fooling the AF.

After a week with strong winds and precipitation the Sun came out today combined with some light winds.

Off to the Eastern part of the Island looking for migrating raptors.

All in all a good day with lots of Sparrowhawks, Rough-legged Buzzards, Marsh Harriers, Red Kites, Ospreys, Hen Harrier, Peregrine Falcons, Buzzards and some Cranes.

#75 (IOM 64) Carrion Crow is quite rare in Eastern Denmark but one individual is hanging around the lookout spot. I have seen it several times but it always keeps quite a distance between me and itself, so sorry for the quality of the picture!

Often seen hanging out with Hooded Crow.

#76 (IOM 65) Garganey (Querquedula). The Danish name is quite interesting. Atling and.  And = duck and Atling = Caboose baby. In the old days there was a belief that it came from the last egg from a Mallard:rolleyes:

As you are not allowed entry into this wetland it is a very long distance photo!

Garganey in the middle and Teal at left of photo. One of the females to the right is probably also a Garganey.
