Bird Ringing

On Sunday 13th February Stuart and Linda will be carrying out a bird ringing session at the bird hide on Wenlock Edge. This is a great chance to get up close to some of our woodland birds, hopefully including Marsh Tits, Nuthatch and Great Spotted Woodpecker. Please feel free to come along for a look from 9am. The ringing will enable us to track their future movements, the birds are also weighed so that we can get an idea as to their condition. It is suitable for all ages and kids will really enjoy it.

The event is weather dependant, high winds or rain will mean that the ringing will not take place as the birds may suffer from cold. If you intend to come please check here on the blog the night before if you are in any doubt as to whether it will be on or not.
