Jarrim Trip 2 2009

Permalink 04:24:00 pm, Categories: additional photos, Breeding Atlas  

On Saturday last we took our second trip to Al Jarrim islands to ring bridled terns. The team comprised Ali, the Boat man, his friend Bassam, Douglas McGarvey, a new ringing recruit and myself. It was the first outing for Douglas who responded very well to some on the hoof training. Himself and Ali plucked 76 chicks from the thorns. Ali did the plucking and Doug did the ringing!
Bassam took over as photographer and parttime plucker with me. We managed to ring 67 birds. The photographs below were taken by Bassam.

The numbers of chicks are up this year compared to last year confirming the estimate of breeding pairs on the 1st visit in June this year.

Ali has been with us for three years now and is a key part of the operation. No bush is too big or too thorny for him!
