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)

Honey Buzzard migration stalls

A 2008 Scottish-ringed young female Honey Buzzard, which was fitted with a solar-powered radio transmitter, has been lingering since about the 4th October, until the last signal received on the 18th October, at/near Tameguert (Morocco).

This bird roosted overnight 13th-14th September (2008) in our area near The Nook/Lupton - in a wood next to that grotty section of the A65 between the M6 motorway and Kirkby Lonsdale. Unfortunately, the following two days were cloudy and no signals were received until it was near Bury on 17th September
