There were many hands (although having just the two shovels rather slowed things up) and the four cannons and single 18m net was soon set. The birds were a little flighty, moving to alternative waterside spots and being flushed by a jogger but eventually a good number settling in the desired spot. On firing most birds took off and it became apparent that one cannon had failed to fire leaving just 3 Redshank, one adult and two juveniles, to be colour-ringed.
With so small a catch I decided to document the complete process.
Totals : 3
Redshank - 3.
