Welcome to the ENRG blogspot. We hope you enjoy reading about the bird ringing activities and experiences of the group.

We were invited back to the flight pond at Hickling on Sunday evening. Several Teal and Mallard had been feeding on the pond.

Six wader nets were put up across the pond in a zig zag. The ducks started to arrive early before it was dark and so could see the nets, however five Mallard and three Teal were caught with about another ten birds getting out of the nets before we could even enter the water.

This was better than the last session we had here, when all we caught was a cold!
