Please note that this event could be subject to late cancellation due to weather.

An introduction to catching, handling and ringing birds; and the reasons for doing so. This event will be all performed under the license of knowledgeable NE volunteer Bob Harris. Please be aware that this event will likely require a lot of patience and enthusiasm, as we never know just how many birds we might/might not catch. It could be an exciting idea to read up on what wildlife is at the mosses before you come.

There are toilets on site at the Manor House, but please bring any drinks and snacks as necessary. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring suitable sturdy footwear. There is no immediate cost, but booking is required due to limited available spaces, so please email fergusw@shropshirewildlifetrust.org.uk to secure your place. Please park on site at the Manor House and be ready for a 9:30 start.
