Ducks gallore?

Saturday, February 18th 2012

It was a cold and squally morning when the 'A' Team met at Foxglove.  Today's task was to install, repair or repostion the ringing team's four duck traps.  Whilst Tony and John headed off to our workshop to build a new base for the trap on the Foxglove Lake, Tom headed out onto the wetland to site two new portable traps.  Three hours later the group re-assembled to complete the installation of the new floor for the Foxglove trap.

We then headed off to Bellflask, where we were joined by Beryl and Emma to do the biggest job of the day, to move and then attach a new floor, to our largest trap.  This shows the team hard at work positioning the trap guides:

 

 ......and finally the job is complete and all we need now are some ducks!
