Just like the last days this morning started with the search for Marsh Harrier nests - this time at Fågelsjön. However there are no new nests to announce but we are confident to find some more during the coming days.

Personel; TMJ, TLR and LSS

Weather; Sunny and blue sky, with a gentle E-NE breeze

Projects; Marsh Harrier nests

 

10 Marsh Harrier nests! Although 2 of them could just be roosting platfforms and will need to be checked in the next days, there are 3-4 more pairs holding territories that have not started building yet. Very promising numbers.

 

So, we had fun in a busy but successful day, looking for nests and checking new territories.

 

See you in the next post!!!

 

Svarttärna från Kvismaren sätter svenskt rekord

En svarttärna som ringmärktes i Kvismaren utanför Örebro sommaren 1998 hittades i Nederländerna förra sommaren, när den nyss hade fyllt 15 år. Det är därmed den äldsta svarttärnan någonsin som ringmärkts i Sverige och sedan återfunnits, och den näst äldsta i Europa. Svarttärnan kontrollerades av Holländska ringmärkare och släpptes sedan, så den kan alltså bli ännu äldre.

Happy Easter everybody!

 

Personel; TMJ, TLR, LSS

Weather; Sunny and warm all day with just a light breeze.

Projects; Marsh Harrier Nests

 

This beautiful Easter Sunday was dominated by Marsh Harriers! In the morning we were searching for their nests at Nyängen, Fågelsjön and Åslasjön. After this nice morning session, we followed a tradition that can’t be lacking on this day… the Easter egg hunt! We only had three eggs, so everyone had just one egg to find but they were well hidden.

Vi öppnar artikelarkivet!

Genom åren har det pågått en mängd olika projekt här på Kvismare fågelstation. Allt från inventeringar till reguljär ringmärkning. Allt arbete har från starten 1962 presenterats i årsskrifter. Nu har vi gjort de allra flesta artiklarna i årsskrifterna 1962-2010 tillgängliga som PDF här på webbplatsen. Det är Bo Nielsen som har gjort ett jättearbete och skannat äldre årsskrifter.

Weather; Cloudy morning. Sun and calm afternoon

Projects; Marsh Harrier nests. Ringing

 

Marsh harriers. This is the main project we are working on at the moment. A new 'wave' of females seems to be arrived at Kvismaren and today there were more females around. With a few pairs displaying and another one building nest, things are getting interesting. How many nests will be in Kvismaren this year?
