Traps for Bird Ringers
Our ringers' traps have been developed by us and tested by ringers in a variety of conditions and habitats. Targeting a variety of species, our aim is to complement mist net - based techniques, providing ringers with alternative capture methods for those species, sites or days when mist nets are not suitable.
All our traps are designed with bird welfare as a top priority and, in most cases, are probably less stressful to the birds than mist nets.
Third Wheel traps are built to high standards. We don't believe in cutting costs with lightweight materials and quick and easy construction methods. As a result our traps are not the cheapest available but they are probably the strongest and most reliable.
