You reap what you sow!

Wake up bro.

When we are bigger we shall be ferocious killing machines!

Oi it's the class photo. There's always one.

This week we have had great success ringing owls and kestrels.Thanks to the sterling efforts of Little Owl and now Barn Owl man Paul Riddle we were able to ring 3 Barn and 11 Little Owls. These were all in boxes that Paul and his team have made,with the financial help of LROS, and erected. This involves countless hours of dedication and liasing with land owners. A massive thank you from CRG and of course the Owls.
We were also able to ring a brood of 5 Barn Owls and 5 Kestrels in boxes that CRG had put up. It is immensely satisfying when a box you have made, found a site for, obtained access and finally erected , eventually bears fruit.

  1. Absolutely fantastic work folks, sorry I couldn't make it this week. Thanks indeed to Paul, LROS and the land owners too.

  2. A big thank you to all who attended, especially the ringers, it was a good night and hopefully more to follow in a week or so.
