Bird Ringing with a Difference

Saturday, September 6th 2014

Today some of the bird ringers from Foxglove visited the bird ringing group based at Teesside.  They were there to ring waders, using a cannon net, which is fired over the top of the birds. These birds are just a litle bigger than those that we ring at Foxglove!

This Redshank was caught and ringed.  In the photographs below you can see the red bill and the red legs.
