Having adopted the plastic bag method of putting away nets that we were taught in Costa Rica we shared our liking of the technique with others. Although Matt and Robin are looking a little bemused I think they approved!
Sunday night at Strumble Head turned out to be the last session as Monday was far too windy to fit in a last couple of hours on the reserve. Conditions were not ideal to try to catch Storm Petrels but as it was to be a new experience for some we decided to put the net up anyway as a learning exercise. Our optimism was rewarded with 3 Storm Petrels by midnight.

After the success of this year we hope to make this a regular event and recommend that other groups plan similar weekends to give ringers a chance for feedback on their skills and assessment for permit upgrades.
