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.

18/03/16 - New venture

Following on from the success of the 2016 LDV calendar, the Friends of the Lower Derwent Valley NNR have once again been busy in their support of Natural England’s work in the area, and have produced a range of greetings cards for sale. These beautiful high quality cards, featuring some of the LDV’s and Skipwith Common’s iconic species have been left blank inside for your own message, so are ideal for any occasion - birthdays, Easter etc, or if you just fancy sending a letter or message to someone special. 


There are 20 designs available featuring some of our favourites from the calendar, and there should be something for everyone including birds, mammals, reptiles, fungi, butterflies and bees. They represent great value at a mere £1.50 each or four for £5.00 – much cheaper than most other greeting cards!


By making a purchase you’ll be helping to support the work on and around the reserve, as proceeds from the sale of these cards will go towards supporting conservation work carried out throughout the area. The cards are available from our NNR Base at Bank Island, Wheldrake or if you don’t live nearby then please get in touch with us on here and we’ll post an order out to you. We’ve been overwhelmed by the popularity and demand so far so make sure you don’t miss out and get yours soon. Also keep your eyes open at various other outlets across the county – they could be coming to a coffee shop near you soon! 


Many thanks to the staff at DCS print for producing these super cards and for the speed in getting the delivery to us on time.
