B76, B78 and the Oriental duck surprise!

Another day on the rivers catching, ringing and reading Dippers. Today Lloyd, my two and me went onto the Redlake near Clun. We managed to catch or read all bar one of the adults at the five nests located and ringed the final brood of chicks there. At one bridge we erected a 20ft mist-net, backed off  and wham, in an act of total selflessness an absolutely stunning male Mandarin submitted itself to scientific research!
