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, it now also features wildlife and work posts, explaining we how manage the NNR for both wildlife and people.

21/09/17 - Aviva lend a hand

Another great day this week working with a team from the York branch of Aviva - as part of their allocated volunteering days. Helping out and working alongside our Reserve Manager Fallon Mahon and volunteers, Nick and Sandra, the team got stuck into various jobs on the reserve. Splitting into smaller teams a number of jobs were tackled in the morning – path clearance, gate repairs and gardening at the NNR base, the afternoon was then spent collecting felled timber and splitting/stacking logs into the wood shed for next winter – ensuring an ongoing supply throughout this year and into next. The work we get done on days such as this really is invaluable in helping out our small team in managing the reserves, so a big thank you to everyone involved. If you work for a company that offers corporate volunteering days and fancy joining our team for the day then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
