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.

12/07/11 - Tower Hide Roost/Swantail Wader Catch

A warm and still night resulted in a very good catch from the reed bed infront of Tower Hide and a few waders (Snipe and Redshank) from the pool infront of Swantail Hide. An attempt at flick netting Swifts resulted in a single Sand Martin....but still it was a tick for Jean! As was the Gropper, Meadow Pipit and Yellow Wagtail so a good night all round.

Total for the night = 78 (6)

Grasshopper Warbler 1
Linnet 1
Meadow Pipit 1
Redshank 1
Reed Bunting 42 (3)
Reed Warbler 3
Sand Martin 1
Sedge Warbler 20 (3)                     
Snipe 3
Swallow 3
Yellow Wagtail 2
