Cows and Net = Disaster

A recent ringing session at Leith Hill turned out to be rather expensive when between net rounds a group of Friesian cows invaded one of my rides and completely shredded the net that was set up!

Thankfully no birds were in the net at the time, but it took 3 of us nearly 10 mins to collect all the bits up and untangle from the bramble!

There goes £80......!


  1. Hi Sam
    Where is the best place at leith hill to see crossbills. Apparently they are there, but I never see them.

  2. Hi John

    Best place is on the heathland behind Coldharbour Cricket Pitch. Always best earlier in the morning. There don't seem to be a huge number about at present, but see every morning I am up there.

    Regards Sam
