Full moon rising. The sturgeon moon, the full moon of August, is rising from the Finnish Gulf at Hanko on the 15th, about half an hour after sunset. As we were waiting for the moon to appear nocturnal migrants were getting active before their overnight flights. Common Sandpipers, Greenshanks, Green Sandpipers, Ringed Plovers, Dunlin, Lapwing and Grey Herons could all be heard and also seen against the darkening sky. Great experience!
