Granby

Jim & I spent 3 hours at Granby today. We cleared the rides that have not seen a mist net for at least 18 months, installed the seed hoppers and baited up. This will be the 10th winter ringing season for the site.

The badgers had been very busy in our absence with huge piles of fresh earth in many places and one adjacent field is now full of young willow saplings destined for power stations. It will be interesting to see if this affects the catch in any way. Some rather poor phone-pics of our progress below...
