Stithians ringing demo

After a couple of failed attempts due to poor weather, we finally managed to run a ringing demonstration yesterday morning for Cornwall Bird Watching & Preservation Society (CBWPS) at Stithians Reservoir. We ran this at the feeding station in the southern cut-off to give members a chance to see what we get up to there.

The feeding station was a bit quiet (or the gathered crowd a bit loud) so we weren't busy, but we did manage to show people Blue, Great and Long-tailed Tit, Chaffinch and Greenfinch, Wren, Dunnock, Robin, Blackbird and a few Reed Buntings. We were also able to show people the feeding station and netting area, funded by public donations and the bird watching society.

Thanks to Simon Taylor for the pics and our band of merry helpers for lending a hand.

  1. it was a good morning and one that I'd like to do more of - unfortunately timing good weather (not much of that Stiths) with time off work is easier said than done. Well worth the effort though Mark, and I think it's safe to safe that everybody enjoyed it. Many thanks....
