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.

16/11/17 - Amey: Corporate Work Day

Last week our volunteers were hard at work on the reserve once again, helping us lead a second corporate work day with staff from the York branch of Amey. In contrast to the last corporate work day, which saw everyone get a good soaking, the sun shone, showing off the Common at its best in the beautiful autumn light. With the cool temperatures, 2 degrees on arrival at the base first thing, everyone soon got warm loppering birch scrub on the heath, with the aim of improving the site by preventing further birch encroachment, and maintaining the open heathland landscape of the Common. Many thanks to everyone from Amey for another productive day, and to our volunteers, Nick, Sandra & Jackie for being such a great help. We are always happy to host corporate volunteering or team building events across the NNR's – please feel free to get in touch if this might be something you're interested in, and we’ll see how best we can accommodate you and your team.
