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)

Quartet of radio-tracked Ospreys

Four out of the five radio-tracked adult Ospreys have passed over our area this spring - the other one, Beatrice, flew north just east of Settle.

Morven (female) and Talisman (male) are a breeding pair. Morven roosted at Kirkby Lonsdale on the night of 6/7th. Talisman was recorded either over or just to the west or east of Morecambe/Heysham at c1400hrs on 7th, whilst Red 8T went over upper Roeburndale (Wolfhole Crag) the previous weekend. Nimrod was later on and roosted near Garstang before passing over the Bowland Fells and then Kirkby Lonsdale
