Bird Ringing Demo Farmoor Res Saturday 25th February

Bird Ringing Demonstration at Farmoor Reservoir - 0800-1130 Saturday 25th February

Come and join us to get up close and personal with wild birds as we are joined by The Edward Grey Institute from Oxford University in a bird ringing demonstration at Farmoor Reservoir. This is a great opportunity to learn about the birds that thrive on our nature reserves. Bird ringing is a valuable method of studying our bird populations and we expect to be able to show you Blue Tits, Great Tits, Reed Buntings and maybe something more unusual such as Nuthatch or Yellowhammer.

The earlier you come, the more birds you will see.

Meet in the car park at Gate 3, Farmoor Reservoir, OX2 9NS. (The event will not take place if it rains).
