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)

Ring reading part 2
In this morning's horrible weather (well unless you're on the east coast and have a hose pipe ban) I had another look for the goldfinch. Anyway, it didn't turn up however I did read two greenfinch rings - neither my own (one from about 2km away and one from about 10km at Heysham). It just goes to show that it can be worth a quick look at rings on birds on a feeder. Now the weather has cleared up I'll try and catch them instead.
