Hi Goncala - of course.

As you know, ‘culling’ species can be an emotive issue and BF has members with diverse views. I felt it important people knew what any information they could give you would be used for. In my own experience of working with people that may have negative reaction to conservation policies/ringing/culling - whatever it may be, being fully transparent about one’s methods and the reasons for which something is being carried out gets better results. People can then get on board or not but at least to have the opportunity to make informed choices as to whether they wish to support such work or in the least look the other way.

I wish you luck with the guide

Hi Deb,

You are right, and I agree with you on transparency.

Actually I could have explained it in the first post, it just didn't occur to me that this could be such a sensitive issue.

I just checked some published information from Denmark: A total of 4-5 observations from the last 10 years.

I checked ornitho.de, and they report 152 sighted individuals in 2020. One pair bred in Northern Germany, 2 pulli observed.

Regards,

Henning

It's never occured to me to look for them on a local lake near me where they were once common.

Are there any remaining at Colwick Park or in Notts more widely?
