Petrel ringing & BBQ at Whitburn Coastal Park, South Tyneside

Saturday 19 July, 7.30pm-early hours!

During the summer the bird ringers at Whitburn Coastal Park observatory use tape lures to catch, ring and study species of petrel (mainly Storm Petrel). These small seabirds are rarely seen on land so this is an excellent chance (if we are lucky!) to get up close and learn about the work to study them. Durham Bird Club has kindly invited us to join them for a BBQ followed by ringing (the first birds are sometimes not caught until 1am).

Free but booking is required to manage numbers. Please contact the Society Office to book.
