Outreach – Ringing Demonstration

Nora and Sophie helped out at a ringing demonstration at Strathkinness Primary School, arranged by Karen Spencer. They helped postdoc Jeroen Minderman, and Shirley Millar (a member of the Tay Ringing Group) ring great tits, blue tits, robins and golden finches. Following the ringing, Nora and Sophie talked to the children about birds, including why they ring them, and how to age and identify the birds.
