..........we didn't manage to catch and ring a single Turnstone this morning! We had a few near misses when the birds came in and we were about to fire the net but they got spooked. It's a very frustrating business this Turnstone ringing and we probably have a 50/50 hit rate in terms of successful catches.
However, we remain undaunted and will return in mid-December to try again on the morning tides. I would like to thank the volunteer from Wyre Borough Council, Peter, who did an excellent job of marshalling dog walkers and interested members of the public!
