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)

Bad Day at Wray
It all looked so promising! Relatively calm in the woods, plenty of birds around when I checked the feeders earlier in the week, but only 6 birds caught!
Well, that is what happens sometimes. Ringing isn't all action-packed fun!
