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)

Variation on the two bird theme

The two bird theory was turned on its head with the following Great White Egret which was recorded in Lancashire and South Wales at the same time, as well as an apparitional lengthy stay at a site which is covered 24/7! These have been excluded/resolved and here is the amended account of its travels with the first of April final date having no ulterior significance! Thanks to Chris Batty for sorting most of this out.
