I appreciate there has been some absolute stunning photos of the SEO's at Rainham but i haven't even tried to take any yet, especially when i'm using a bridge camera that doesn't really like moving targets. In fact i never usually even bother on birds in flight. I had a bash.....

So with Hawky obtaining his C permit he needed a place to start, so i offered up the garden. For the last two Sunday mornings we've put nets up. Last Sunday was a bit to windy, the net was moving a lot but will still managed to trap and process 5 birds.
Today was better so the main net a 60ft 3 panel was placed along with this time a smaller 20ft 3 panel. The main net travels from the grass nearest the house and heads straight towards the back. It finishes with about a third of the garden remaining. The last net we placed across a small fly way to the back left on the diagonal.
This morning was a lot better, we had some escapes this morning but they were soon getting caught. Another 5 birds processed this morning. We even had our first re-trap although its not counted. The Blue Tit was released and about an hour and half latter was back in the net.
I must admit to thoroughly enjoying it and can easily see myself training but not just yet life's too busy. Hawky doing the bird handling for obvious reasons.
Great Tit x2
