A team of 10 ringers carried out a catch on the pools at Harty on the night of the 2nd/3rd December.  Conditions were reasonable with cloud to mask the moon, almost no breeze and temperatures around 5°C.

The catch of 68 birds included:

  • Dunlin - 56 mainly adults with 4 retraps including birds from September and November 2009.
  • Bar-tailed Godwit - 3 (all adults)
  • Redshank - 2
  • Grey Plover - 1
  • Knot - 1
  • Little Stint - 1 adult

A good catch in fair conditions.
