10 000 birds

Two friends from my University in Canada who also happen to be in Europe this autumn came to Copenhagen (CPH) for the weekend. I dragged them out to do some birding today at the sand spit south of CPH.
I promised them 10 000 individual birds and an unlimited supply of free plums - I don't think they were disappointed! For the most part we saw the same birds (or at least same species) that I had seen 2 weeks ago - but we found a few new ones including more land-birds (i.e. warblers).

Anyway, I'll post some photos (and videos!) soon...ish

Todays highlights:
5 tern species, 15 shorebird species and 58 species in total.

Reed Warbler
Curlew Sandpiper
Black-tailed Godwit - I thought I wasn't going to get this one!
Sky Lark
