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)

Nest boxes - start of the season

Early indications are that this is a good season for birds using boxes in some of our schemes. Boxes in Roeburndale already have more nesting attempts than they had last year with increased numbers of Blue Tits despite the harsh winter weather. Pied Flycatcher numbers already appear to be at the same level as last year but it is early and there may be more to come.
