Thursday 4th, Kane Brides arrived and on Friday 5th, Craig Brookes arrived in Bangor, whom both were joining me for their first time at SCAN Wader Ringing Group.
Throughout the weekend we made a couple of successfull catches, enabling both Craig and Kane to experience something different for a change as they don't get the opportunity to handle waders that often.
Species caught during the weekend included:- Redshank, Oystercatcher, Lapwing, Knot, Dunlin, Curlew, Snipe and a lonely Starling.
Huge thanks to Steve Dodd for yet another successfull weekend's cannon-netting.. To the team for making everything work quickly and efficiently and to Craig Brookes and Kane Brides for their help during the weekend. I hope both of you had a great time and hopefully see you both again soon.
If anyone would like to take part in one of the weekend sessions with Scan Wader Ringing Group, pleae feel free to contact me through my blog and we would be happy to have you along. Sessions include cannon-netting and mist-netting at night, although the latter is weather dependent.
