Misty conditions hold back the migration. Small Geese movement in the morning - Greater Whitefronts/ suur-laukhani Anser albifrons 385m (best of the autumn season) and Bean Goose/ rabahani Anser fabalis 64m (+Anser/Branta - määramata hani/lagle 340m ). There has been also night time Geese migration - our sound recorder has several proofs of passing Great White-fronted Geese flocks.
Together with Geese, the very first 5 Bewick Swans/ väikeluik Cygnus columbanius arrived today at the southern tip of the Kihnu island. Afternoon I did small walk at the western beach and found quite early Snow Bunting/ hangelind Plectrophenax nivalis.

The Sunflowers with the bird protection...

... and without protection, but with the happy Great Tits :)
