Welcome to this new blog, where you will find regular updates about the exploits and activities of the Axe Estuary Ringing Group. Please browse through all the pages on the blog, where you will find more information about the Group, the area, and how to get involved.
Today the Group took part in the Axe Vale and District Conservation Society's Open Day held on the Axe Estuary Wetlands. We specifically put on a public demonstration of bird ringing for several dozen Society members and the public present. During the morning 64 birds were caught including two new Kingfishers, bringing the total caught at two sessions to 13, excluding retraps. Other species ringed included Reed, Warblers, Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs.
