The Group have been invited for several years to set a display of our work at the Natural Seaton Festival and attending the last on Saturday 15th July was no exception. We intend to highlight our stand for future years, but nevertheless many folk visited us and took and interest in the ringing of birds. It is also a good event to explain our conservation work and recruit new members.
Our last two sessions have shown a steady number of birds, mainly juveniles as one would expect at this time of the year. A total of 192 birds of twenty species. No specific highlights other than perhaps the usual distribution of Kingfishers from higher up the Axe and Coly Rivers and tributaries. Two were caught at the second of the sessions on 17th July.
