Poppin' ma Coot Cherry - 7th September 2011

As the summer turns into autumn, it approaches Coot season as today saw Kane, Chris and I head down to Redesmere, Macclesfield to do a bit of grabbing.
As I am the only member yet to catch a Coot, I went first at having a go for them...

It took a while, but after a couple of attempts, I had my hands on a young Coot and added to the day total which was 10 new birds and 1 recap.

Kane still makes it look easy, but it is certainly not! I will be back to work on my technique, but for now, I just have peace of mind that it is not impossible! A great day!
