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 how we manage the NNR for both wildlife and people.

08/11/18 - British Wildlife Photography Awards

Many of our regular visitors to our Facebook page and Twitter account may know that the information included within them are brought to life by the photographs taken in and around the valley by @LucyMurg. Lucy’s photographs really showcase the wildlife the valley has to offer, and so we were delighted and very proud to find out that one of Lucy's images was included in this year’s British Wildlife Photography Awards.

Lucy's captivating image of two Grass Snakes coiled together in the bomb bay walls on Skipwith Common NNR, was awarded highly commended by the judges in the Portrait category - to achieve this award, amongst the thousands of entries is no mean feat – so a huge well done to Lucy from all of us here in the LDV. Lucy has been down to London this week to see her image featured in the exhibition at the Mall Galleries in Trafalgar Square, where it will be on show until the 11th, before touring the country with the rest of the award-winning images.
