Ringing on 25th Jun 2011

Just the one bird ringed today - an Avocet which had become apparently stuck in the Mud on Jacksons Lagoon! This has happened before with Young Avocets getting stuck in ruts in the mud, although usually they don't get spotted untill management work is carried out on the Lagoons, by which time it is too late to be of any help.

  Upon visiting the bird on the Lagoon it was found to be fine and apparently just dehydrated, so it was quickly ringed and left where it was to the attention of its parents. Hopefully it will survive through to fledging. Unfortunetly due to the birds apparent condition and the need for a speedy visit, it was not photographed.
