NLRG was formed in 1957 to help in the study of birds in the Lancaster and District Birdwatching Society area. There are currently 12 active ringers. Species currently being studied include: Pied Flycatcher, Bearded Tit, Sand Martin, Twite, Goosander, Oystercatcher and Grey Wagtail. Migration has been studied for 28 years at Heysham. We welcome anyone who wants to observe, help or perhaps wish to become a ringer. Photo: A Heysham-ringed Twite on the Mull of Kintyre (thanks to Eddie Maguire)

Hi Paul,
Thanks for the link to this.
Nice to see some good coverage of ringing - quite brave to publish photos of birds hanging in nets etc.

Not sure that my Svensson would help me much with Green Sandpiper! (Image No.8)
