start of the season

I will call this Sunday a start of the season, because we finally caught some gulls:)

After weekends of rain, finally came one without.

We meet at 8 and as we came to the tip realized that there are truck and bulldozers working on the tip and it looked as it wasn't gonna be a good day all tough lots of gulls were present.

After half an hour we agreed with workers the place where we'll put the net.
It wasn't the very best place , but only place where we wouldn't disturb each others..

The net was set at half past 9 and then we waited:) it was funny because we didn't wait in the car, but on a hill, fully exposed..

 Gulls started landing in couple of minutes but not many were in the catching area. In my head it was something like"just fire, catch something , we don't want to go without firing home again!" Then all of the sudden subad LBBG walked in the catching area. As soon as Zec said "safe" I firred! And we had it under the net :) In the end we had around 70 birds under net:) not bad at all.

I have LBBG in my hands:)

We immediately started ringing and Zec an Toni reset the net.

 After ringing some 50 birds gulls started comming back to catching area so I decided to go to the hill and wait for the catch. It didn't took long and we had enough birds and fired. You can see second catch on Maciej's video here

In the end this was one of the best catch we ever had:) around 120 gulls:)

After this the wind was getting stronger so we decided to finish what we had and go home..

Here are few interesting birds:

722H LBBG 3w
726H 1w cach

and one BHG for the end:
All together 1 LBGG, 1 cachinnans, 10 YLG and 174 BHG:)
Looking forward to next Sunday:)
I would like to thank Maciej and Mladen for photos and videos!
