Facts about black sun
Marshes and stalk bones are the prerequisite for Black Sun.
The starling comes to the marsh to eat stalk bone and goose beetle larvae, which are found in the largest quantities in moist grasslands. During the day they especially look for food in the outer corners of Tøndermarsken, and at night they look for roof pipes where they spend the night.
Black Sun is found in many places, but most are in the Tønder and Ballum marshes.
Black Sun means “sleep safely”. The starlings gather in the large flocks because they are then better able to repel attacks from birds of prey.
The sleeping areas are constantly being moved to cheat the birds of prey and because the roof pipes break after a few days of use, whereby the starling gets to sit with its feet in water. It costs too much energy. One can therefore never be completely sure where the starlings go down to spend the night.
Black Sun in Tøndermarsken can sometimes hold up to 1 mill. birds. When the overnight flock becomes over 500,000 birds, the flock splits up, causing too much inner turmoil.
The name Black Sun.
It could not actually be called anything else. The name was first used in 1974, when nature guide Iver Gram showed the phenomenon in front of participants on a public nature trip.
Black Sun spring and autumn
The phenomenon is seen in spring and autumn, most birds are there in autumn.
The starlings come from all the countries around the Baltic Sea and Norway.
