We have recieved a new supply of 70d/2pl and 110d/2pl 5 panel nets that are 2.7m high, of lengths 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18m. Full details of stock and prices are shown below.

Please note whilst we work with our supplier to ensure the basic quality and finish of these nets to a good standard, and certainly make them safe to use, sometimes the cosmetic finishing is not always up to the standards of NR or Ecotone nets. There may be the odd blemish or error during production. We will replace any nets that are unusable or unsafe, or where the errors are significantly sufficient that you are not happy with the net you have been supplied with. See the review below from the East Yorkshire RG

The nets are supplied in the usual 3,6,9,12,15 and 18m lengths (without net bags). The new supply, have all black loops, so it might be worthwhile either using some electrical tape to mark the top loop once you have used the net once. Unfortunately we have experianced that some of the loops have broken, and this has been caused where the metal clip on the loops has been crimped snagging the cord making the odd one or two susceptible when under tension ot break. This is being resolved through a different method of crimping the clip on the loops in the next batch. We have requested the top loop in a different colour but the supplier is unwilling to do so due to the production process they use.

Nets are usually made of Polyester or Nylon. There are various views on the durability of either material, but either is suitable providing their are made of multifilament material and not monofilament. Monofilament nets can cause injury to birds unless the nets are monitored constantly and they are removed qiuckly, as this material is rougher and can cause injury to birds in them more frequently. We will therefore never sell monfilament nets.

Net strengths (thicknesses) used  for ringing commonly are 70d (denier), often referred to as super fine, 75d or 110d (standard passerine mesh thickness, with 110d being slightly stronger, but slightly more visible), and 210d, which is usually used for heavier species, but is much more obvious than 70 or 75d material. Basically the higher the denier the slightly more visible the nets will be, but also means they are more durable. There can be a pay off between net life and net visibility. The strength of the net can be increased by using different ply. Net strenghth is measured by multiplying the mesh size by the ply, so for example 70d/2ply has a strength of 140, 75d/3ply the strength is 225, and for 110/2ply is 220. So, a 75d net of 2 ply, with a strength of 150, will be less durable than a 75d 3ply net with s trenght of 225.  

Mesh size commonly used for passerine ringing is 15*15 (sometimes referred to as 30mm) or 16*16mm (referred to as 32mm), which is a passerine size mesh, good for the majority of the catches consisting of Warblers or small passerines, with 19*19 mm (38mm) for Thrushes or small waders, and 30*30mm (60mm) for bigger birds such as Owls and Waders, and 45*45 (90) for raptors. Care needs to be taken using large mesh sizes as smaller birds can become more entangled in them. The nets should be more closely supervised and checked more frequently, than you would 14mm, 16mm or 19mm mesh nets.
