Nestbox News

Friday, May 30th 2014

After a frantic month racing around the nestboxes in Foxglove and across the wider training area we have almost made it to the end! Only five boxes still have unringed chicks on the reserve; these will be visited over the weekend for Eco Club tomorrow and then the Nestbox Walk on Sunday morning.

There are several broods of Kestrels to return to and ring over the weekend. Once these and the remaining small boxes are re-visited the ringers will have a bit of breathing space, but then there are always the CES sessions and plenty of wader chicks around to keep them all out of mischief!

Thank you to all the ringing team and all the other supporters for your hard work over the past few weeks.  More details of exactly what has been achieved will be posted once all the data is collated.
