You're gonna need a bigger car! Tern catching requires lots of non-standard ringing kit.
Kelvin lying down on the job again!
A sharp whack in the kidneys reminds you that it's always worth keeping an eye on what's behind you!
Of the 33 cygnets found we managed to catch and colour-ring 32 of them (one was too small). Having stayed nice and dry for most of the day (well apart from Jane who at one point thought she was Tom Daley) the last brood, 7 cygnets all capable of flying, necessitated extreme measures in order to maintain our 100% record and so it all finished very wet and duckweedy! No action photos available I'm afraid - I will try harder next week when we go back for the remaining broods, hopefully I can convince Tom to do a slow motion replay!
Peace and tranquility restored
