10 Tonnes of Coot!

A short blog post this evening to just say a huge congratulations to Kane Brides for reaching the very impressive milestone of 1000 Coot to have been hand-caught and colour-ringed.
All this has been completed in just under two years which is impressive by anybodies standards, and I feel proud to say that I have been able to contribute to this total whilst helping Kane on a few trips out this year.

The 1000 milestone also means that the colour combinations that Kane has been using, have run out and today marked the start of a revisited Coot project. Kane is now using single white darvic rings showing 3 black letters/numbers.
Please visit Kane's blog post introducing the darvic project for more details. As you will see, we cannot stress enough that every resighting of a colour-ringed bird is invaluable so please report both colour-ringed and darviced birds to kanebrides(AT)
