©Capt. H.Morrey Salmon CURIOSITY LURES MIGRATORY BIRDS INTO SKOKHOLM'S FUNNEL-SHAPED BANDING TRAP More than 6,000 feathered ocean and land rovers were "ringed" in one year by the author, chiefly through the useofthis mesh enclosure. When the travelers come up to investigate the strange apparatus, they are driven to the far narrow end, captured, banded, and released. OneManx shearwater was retained, sent toVenice in an airplane, and then freed. It got back to the island in 14 days, despite the fact that the Adriatic Sea is outside the known geographical range ofthespecies (page 275).
