Possibly, Paul, but surely a baiting professional will know that the average wetland bird-watching tree-climber, when on the scent of his or her favoured prey, is, like a wily seasoned dingo, extremely unlikely to accept a bait that is not presented convincingly in the guise of his or her immediate quarry. Another possibility is that the trunk and lower branches of the tree have been coated with a neurotoxic substance that will cause paralysis on contact. However, I doubt that the high-level authority needed for deployment of the Nature Parks Special Measures Group against, let's be frank about it, fairly village-level crake-watching has yet been obtained.
