Net Rides

Saturday, July 16th 2016

Some of the bird ringers were at another site today preparing the net rides.   The email sent out to the ringers did warn that waders or wellies would be helpful.  As you can see from these photographs, they certainly were.

A net ride

Where to start?

Where to start

Just deciding which branch needs to be cut.

Just starting the task

Once the overhanging branches were removed they had to be pulled through the water and squirrelled away.

Keeping dry

At the end of the afternoon the net ride was ready for the net, but unfortunately it was too windy.

All finished

Thank you to everyone who helped today.  This net ride will be ready to use over the coming weeks.
