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.

18/07/11 - A visit from Jean

Today Jean Thorpe (of Ryedale Rehabilitation Centre) brought in a Buzzard and three Tawny Owls to be ringed and released. The Buzzard was ringed as young female and released this evening in the woods at Sherburn where she was found. She took off into a mixed woodland with another Buzzard that was already there, perhaps the parent?! Another great job Jean!

The three Tawny Owls are not ready to release just yet but they were ringed and so are ready to go as soon as they’re fit and well enough.
