Welcome to the LDV NNR ringing blog, this blog is designed to share the experiences, findings and tales from a group of dedicated ringers. We specialise in conservation orientated research projects, largely focusing on wildfowl, waders, owls and birds of conservation concern, in and around the Vale of York NNR's.

NB - Whilst the purpose of this blog was initially designed to cover our nationally important wildfowl ringing activities, regular readers may have noticed the increase in posts detailing wildlife found across the valley (ranging from plants, fungi, butterflies, dragonflies & other invertebrates). Ringing posts will hopefully resume over the winter months, and will run alongside wildlife and work posts.

01/08/11 - Another Gad to be had!

Another attempt at the brood of Gadwall and Tufted Ducks on the Top Pond at North Duffield was had and resulted in a single juvenile Gadwall and a re-trap Moorhen, believed to be a bird not initially ringed on the reserve. The Tufted Ducks hid amongst the reeds again, maybe next time!
