Post details: Wader ringing


Wader ringing

Permalink 02:27:53 pm, Categories: additional photos  

With 5-6,000 waders roosting on the open ground at the northern end of Tubli Bay, ringing looked promising. Last week we tried a net for the first time. Being conservative to begin with we put up one 2 shelf 40 ft net and caught 12 birds. The second night we put up 2 4 shelf nets and caught 25 birds. The site looks really promising for the rest of the winter.
We also had two new helpers who were bitten by the bug! We may well have three new trainees at last, which bodes well for the future.

Nada and Thamir enjoying the occasion.

Terek Sandpiper, a new ringing tick for me!.
