After rain comes.......

Yesterday September 12th it was rainy till 10.00am but then the sun broke through. It was clear that many birds had arrived. The discovery of a Greenish Warbler behind De Robbenjager was after half an hour followed by a flying and calling Little Bunting. The bird landed on the west side of De Robbenjager but unfortunately could not found here. The birds were not deterred by the work on the Robbenjager. This area with a newly constructed Sand Martin wall and a few deep dug ditches with faint descending slope becomes even more interesting for birds. The driving force behind this initiative is Marc Plomp of Het Vogelinformatiecentrum. Many Wheatears and Whinchats were on and around the fields to find. In a short time at least 4 Wrynecks and 2 early Ring Ouzels were seen here. With 2 Grey Phalaropes including 1 on De Bol and 1 in Utopia, the Asian in Ottersaat (52 days) and still a Rosy Starling around De Witte Hoek, Texel continues to do well. For today expectations were high. A "clicking" Little Bunting and a calling Red-throated Pipit were heard at De Robbenjager. For the rest of the day it remained fairly quiet. However the bushes are full of Garden Warblers, Dunnocks and Common Redstarts.
