The waxwings were unfortunately not to be seen today in the early morning, but a few other native species. The latter could also be a song thrush, I’m not so sure.
For 36 hours a photo friend was in Cuxhaven. A program was quickly put together. Landscape, birds and what else that is somewhat nice and can be done in 1.5 days.

Today it was almost windless at the Grodener Wettern. Accordingly, there was also more activity there.
This morning drove again to the place named Baumrönne in Cuxhaven to hopefully photograph the reed buntings. It was quite windy, so that not too much was going on. With a few situations I had then but luck.

Approximately 10000 starlings are currently seen on the Cappel-Neufeld compensation areas and the adjacent dike. From the observation tower a few avocets could also be observed and a meadow pipit was quite busy supporting the breeding.
