New Net Ride and CES Data

Monday, October 10th 2011

The strong winds meant that ringing was not possible today.  However after a lie in some of the bird ringing team arrived at 9am to continue work on the new net ride, number 58.  This had to be replaced as it was on a path.

Dry kindling was collected for the fire and Tom was designated the pyro man!!

John was cutting down trees, especially Silver Birch, whose seeds spread very easily all over the reserve.  Trees lining the net ride were pollarded.

By the middle of the afternoon the net ride looked totally different.  Hopefully it will soon be catching birds.  Thank you very much for your hard work.

In the Centre, data from the last two days of CES bird ringing was being entered into the computer.  The deadline to get all the CES info to the BTO is 17th October and with only about 80 retraps left to enter this should now be easily managed.  Many thanks to everyone who has helped with this huge task.

There are still another 200 sheets of birds ringed elsewhere this year still to be computerised!
