Schelladler an der Nordseeküste bei Heide

SchelladlerDer bereits vor ein paar Tagen gemeldete Schelladler (Clanga clanga) wird immer noch östlich der Eidermündung in Schleswig-Holstein gesichtet. Der Adler treibt sich immer noch am so genannten Moetjenpolder Dorf Hemme herum. Der Vogel wurde erstmals am 11. März 2015 von einem Fotografen festgestellt, der die Bilder aber eher aus Zufall aufgenommen hatte. Einige sehr gute Beobachtungen konnte vom Aussichtsturm “Rehmer Moor“ gemacht werden. Der Turm befindet sich östlich des Dorfes Rehm. Die Adler ist nicht ganz stationör, sondern kreuzt von Zeit zu Zeit in die Lundener Niederung. Meist wurde der Adler nicht weit vom Aussichtsturm fliegend festgestellt. Er scheint sich aber auch von Zeit zu Zeit ein Ruhepäuschen im Schilf zu gönnen. Am Sonntag, den 15.

Steller’s Eider female on Baltic Sea of Germany

Steller's Eider in snowstormToday a female Steller’s Eider, Polysticta stelleri, has been recorded north of the Holnisspitze, which is a peninsula north-east of a town in Schleswig-Holstein named Gluecksburg. After a run in the last days to the one individual of a male King Eider, Somateria spectabilis, at Kalkhorst at the shores of the Baltic Sea, this is the second mega duck in a short time, which can be seen at the shores of the Baltic Sea in Germany. The female Steller’s Eider was observed the first time by Katrin Habenicht and photographed with some nice shots (including a nice starting/ flying shot). The Eider can be seen in the northern extension of the Holnisser ferry road (Faehrstraße). The duck swims between other ducks (Eurasian Wigeon and Common Eider) present in the same area.

The Holnis peninsula, which is a nature reserve is approx. 15km distance east of Flensburg, which is connected to the rest of the world via Highway (Autobahn) 7. Holnis peninsula marks the northernmost point of the German mainland. The area extends for a distance of 6 km into a fjord – the so-called Flensburger Foerde – and is a reknown pastime area of Gluecksburg. On the peninsula there is a cliff and a salt marsh with a major nesting colony of seabirds.

This female Steller’s Eider is obviously only Continue reading Steller’s Eider female on Baltic Sea of Germany
