Bird Ringing @ River Kennet

Rock and I made a very early start recently to join a bird ringing session near Marlborough. The bird ringers were very professional and we had fantastic, really close-up views of many birds.  Here are just a few including: Goldcrest; Cetti’s Warbler; Bullfinch; and Wren.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.

    1. Conservationists put numbered rings on birds with the aim of collecting information about their movements and health. This information helps them understand what influences population sizes over time and identify ways of reversing declines. We attended a session to watch the ringing process. Local bird groups may have info about a session near you!
