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.

01/10/17 - Lloyds get stuck in

Last week we were pleased to welcome a team from Lloyds Bank to the reserve for a day of their corporate volunteering time – and on a day which felt more like the middle of summer! With so many extra pairs of hands, along with our small team of volunteers, we split into small groups and tackled various jobs. Firstly undertaking some replacement fencing at Bank Island, to help maintain a stock proof perimeter to allow grazing to take place across the site. Other members of the team enjoyed sawing and loppering willow scrub on Wheldrake Ings to help out the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust - now allowing local birders to see properly from Tower Hide. Whilst a third team spent time collecting timber for the winter log supply – all in all a fun and very productive day - many thanks to everyone involved.
