Birds at the Eco-club

Sunday, November 29th 2009

The topic for todays eco-club was birds. After a slide show all about birds the youngsters listened to how and why birds are caught at Foxglove. Here you can see the children learning how the birds are caught for ringing. Toy birds were thrown into the mist net (this really confused Meg the dog)!

The children then watched some real birds being ringed, measured and weighed and helped by releasing some back into the trees.

A huge thank you to Elizabeth who prepared everything for todays session and to Tony for taking time out to demonstrate the bird ringing. Thanks too to Sue and Raymond for helping out.
