Mist Netting  Christmas Session


NB The above programme lists the main public sessions during the year, but there may be opportunities at other times to catch birds. Members will be informed of these.  In particular dates for cannon netting of Shelduck on the Axe Estuary and of Wigeon on the Otter Estuary will be circulated to members nearer the time (though the Otter sessions have now been programmed).  This is a change from previous practice to allow flexibility in catching.  Shelduck catches will now be processed near the catching site at Seaton Marshes.

1. All sessions start at the Discovery Hut, unless stated otherwise.

2. Start time will be announced close to the date and sessions usually extend (except for cannon- net catches) into the early afternoon.

3. Dates may change with short notice depending on weather conditions, so members are advised to check that the session is still proceeding.

4. Non-members may attend sessions, but are requested to make a donation towards costs of rings, etc.
