30 Days Wild - Day 21 - 21 June 2015


30 Days Wild - Doing something wild everyday

Day 21 - Today I did another ringing demonstration but this time to people between 12 and 17 years old.  Most had never watched ringing before or held a bird.  The ringing was part of Camp Avalon and took place at the Avalon Marshes Centre on the Somerset Levels.  

It was somewhere that no one usually rings and it was great to set up the feeders lines where I thought the nets would be best put up,  It was also unusual for all the birds to be unringed.
