Outdoor Event, 9am
During the spring and summer the Society’s Bird Ringing Group sets mist nets in Gosforth Park Nature Reserve. The birds that are caught are measured, weighed and ringed and this information forms part of a national database that helps to monitor changes in bird populations. To become a qualified bird ringer takes time, commitment and the ability to get up early on a Sunday morning.
The Bird Ringing Group will show you how they carry out their work and you can watch them catch, measure and release the birds. They will also answer any questions about bird ringing and the birds they catch.
This event is free but booking is required to limit numbers. Please contact the Society Office to book.
This event is led by Chris Redfern
