Ringing at Spurn

Ringing provides us with a look in to the incredible movements made by migrant birds, such as the Spurn-ringed Grey Plover which was seen at Yaibari Ornithological Station on the Yamal Peninsula of Siberia, or the Common Tern caught here which was ringed in Namibia two years previous!

Ringing demonstrations will be happening throughout MigFest - come and see the experienced Spurn ringers in action, learn how they age and sex certain species in the hand and help weave more magical stories of migration through their ringing efforts.
