Reed Cutting

It's that time of year again when gardening duties call and mist net rides need a hair cut. Ian and I headed to the reedbed yesterday evening and spent a good hour trimming the willows and cutting the reeds. The net rides were still fairly open as we had used them in the Spring, but they weren't open enough to enable to put mist nets up.

Below are before and after shots in one of the rides (apologies for them being a little dark).



The forecast for the weekend is looking good in terms of wind strength so hopefully I'll get some ringing done. I'll keep you posted.
