Now that spring has sprung The Donkey Sanctuary is offering bird-lovers a very special breakfast ‘bird ringing’ demonstration to show how birds are tagged so that they can be identified and tracked and so that more can be learned about their habits.
Participants can enjoy an introductory talk followed by the chance to watch licensed ringers catch, tag and record some woodland birds. There may be the opportunity to release the birds.
James Chubb, The Donkey Sanctuary’s wildlife expert, says: “There’s no other way to get so close to wild birds, other than ringing. Working alongside licensed ringing experts, this event will give you the chance to get nose-to-beak with some amazing woodland birds.”
The demonstration, on Wednesday 9th April 2014 from 9am to 11am, is priced at £10 per person which includes a bacon roll and a tea or a coffee.
Places are limited.
