Wader ringing weekend Pt2: Canon netting.

Posted Friday 5th April 2013 at 20:49 by Rick and Elis
Our morning started at 03:00 hours when we awoke to get prepared for a 04:00 departure with Nigel Clark the softly spoken figurehead of the group, and some of the team. We arrived at the trapping area in the dark and started to walk along the pathway behind the sea wall hidden from the beach, there were six of us in total. Two people were left at the netting site and four off us moved on further up the beach, there was Nigel, Elis, me and Danni, who was given a walkie-talkie and instructed to continue up the beach for 150 yards to be 'long-stop´ preventing dog walkers, joggers and even birders from walking along the beach and scaring off all the birds.
