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)

Take care when reading Cormorant rings

Not in our area, but emanating from a posting of Cliff Raby's excellent montage on the LDBWS site. Everyone who has read this Puffin-island-2008-ringed bird during its "high profile" stay at Marton Mere has labelled it 'C6C'. Stuart Newsom has had "quite a bit of grief over this bird" as the '6' is in fact a 'G'!
It could end up round here.................
