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.

26/07/11 - Buntings, warblers & almost a Quail!

Another attempt in the reed bed in front of Tower Hide saw much fewer birds caught even with the maximum number of nets up. Whilst walking upto the nets through the reeds a Quail took off from the ground and just dodged the net! It landed back in the reeds further down from where the nets were but it wasn’t to be seen again....

Total for the night = 44

Reed Bunting 24
Reed Warbler 3 
Sedge Warbler 17
