Bird release

Details

As the leaves turn gold and the sun starts to lose the heat of summer, millions of birds travel to, from and through the UK from neighbouring Europe, but sometimes also from much further away. To celebrate - and record - these epic travellers, we're holding bird ringing demonstrations on Saturday 12th, Wednesday 16th and Sat 19th October as part of the annual Filey and Flamborough Ringing and Migration Week. We hope to catch some of these migrating birds along with the more common garden species and our experienced bird ringers will talk to you about what we catch and how bird ringing helps us to monitor the health of bird populations (and for kids there'll be the chance to release ringed birds). Join our ringers from 9.30am to 12 noon, event activities are included within the admission fee (Free for RSPB members).
