Promoting observation, free range exploration, sense of place and citizen science, through the field notes of a naturalist.

This one is EY66023

Not sure if those of you who read this blog are starting to reel at the sight of another ringed black headed gull but for me this is citizen science in action. There are thousands of bird ringers in the UK and abroad giving up their time and money to further our understanding of birds and to provide the much needed evidence base for targeted conservation action. As a lapsed bird ringer its not in my DNA to ignore a bird carrying a ring and at this time of year it's gulls that provide the stimulus.This bird was one of two with rings at Cwmbran Boating Lake midweek.
