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)

Better day in the woods

after the poor show a fortnight earlier, Saturday was more like it, even though I slept in and didn't get to the woods til 8.30 after having to scrape ice off the car.

51 birds of 9 species caught, including Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Goldcrest, Robin, Marsh, Great, Blue, Coal and Long-tailed Tit.

Interestingly, very few Blue Tits on the feeder but plenty in the canopy - there is probably still plenty up there for them to feed on at the moment.
