Hello again birding friends

I strongly disagree with cannon netting and concur with remarks by Peter Cheuwon. If I see a large flock of waders i am very careful who I tell. I don't want to associate with cannon netters and I fear some will try and catch or band our birds!

I cant imagine what happens to them after they have been cannon netted. We know a swamp nearby where large flocks of Black-tailed Godwits congregate at this time of the year. Would they come back to the same place if they were cannon netted or would they be frightened off to a less favorable place never to return?
