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.

18/08/11 - A Quiet One

Following last weeks’ very quiet roost it was decided that one last attempt would be had, nets were set up along the boardwalk leading up to the hide, the end result being fewer birds than last time! Bird activity in general was very quiet on arrival, however ten Snipe dropped into the pool infront of Swantail Hide, typical when no wader nets had been set! Nevertheless a good record as not many Snipe have been seen lately around the reserve.

Total for the night = 16

Bullfinch 2
Linnet 1
Reed Bunting 4
Reed Warbler 3
Sedge Warbler 3
Whitethroat 2
Wren 1
