All Creatures Great and Small

Saturday, June 2nd 2012

The Foxglove team are concerned with all wildlife and not just the species that reside within the LNR boundary. Yesterday, bird ringers were out all day in numerous places across the wider MOD training area and even further afield! Many different birds of varying sizes were ringed ranging from these tiny Wren chicks whose parents had taken up redidence in a Dipper nest box.

At the other end of the scale, these three Peregrine Falcon chicks were carefully ringed and returned safely to their nest too!
