Ringing Demo...4th July

Today was the day of our ringing demo at Fleetwood Marsh Nature Park celebrating 100 years of the British ringing scheme. We had a good turn out from Fylde Ringing Group and we put up 5 nets up in the reedbed and willow scrub. The event ran from 8.00 a.m. until 11.00 a.m. and we had about 30 people turn up through the morning. Even Radio Lancashire turned up and interviewed 'yours truly' live on air!

Over the course of the morning we ringed 12 Reed Warblers, 4 Sedge Warblers, Reed Bunting and 6 Whitethroats. We also controlled a Whitethroat. All in all a grand day out!
