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.

10/11/18 - New LDV calendar

Following the results of the British Wildlife Photography Awards being announced and made public last week, we can now reveal that our 2019 Friends of the Lower Derwent Valley calendar is on sale. With a new format and layout, it’s bigger and better than ever before, with 24 large and 40 thumbnail images taken by @LucyMurg, including three images either ‘shortlisted’ or awarded ‘highly commended’ by the judges in the BWPAwards. 

All the photographs have been taken either in the Lower Derwent Valley or nearby Skipwith Common, and reflect what you could find by visiting during each month. Not only is it our best calendar yet but it’s the cheapest too – it’s a bargain at just £6 this year, and makes the ideal Christmas gift for anyone with an interest in birds, wildflowers, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles and the local area. All proceeds to go back into the ‘Friends of the Lower Derwent Valley’ to help support conservation projects in the area, and ensure the amazing variety of wildlife found here and showcased in this calendar, continues to thrive. Feel free to message us on here to arrange collection/postage if you’d like one, and don’t delay, numbers available are limited this year, thank you.
