No coots

Despite copious amounts of bait being doled out for the lucky inhabitants of Roath Park Lake yesterday, we failed to induct any more coots into the colour ringing project.

Our lack of success was mainly down to a distinct lack of anything that wasn't goose or swan shaped taking interest in our offerings. There were double figures of coots loafing about on the lake's waters but not a single one could be bothered to come and investigate what their web-footed fellows were eating.

All was not lost; we saw some of the Llanwern Greglags and litterally picked up a control for the site in the form of a Canada Goose.
