Redesmere Ringing

Having not been out ringing since 11th December, when I was lucky enough to handle my first Collard Dove; it was time to get out and catch some birds.. An invite from Kane was enough to get me out of the house and on Thursday afternoon we set off to Redesmere Lake in Cheshire where we went onto catch 6 Coot, which were fitted with brand new colour rings. Also caught were 2 Tufted Ducks like this stunning adult male.. A quick check for Black-headed gull rings resulted in all being ring-less.. After noting down the colour ringed Coot combinations, the daylight was slowly fading so we called it a day and headed for home..

The next day was going to be somewhat rather busy and something that I would never have expected to see..
