Inspiring the Next Generation

The most recent Tag-n-Track ringing demonstration featured another stunning line up of the nation's favourite woodland birds!

The sunshine on Sunday 5th March resulted in the public and birds both flying in to visit the next in the series of Tag-n-Track Bird Ringing Demonstrations. We had a busy day with birds visiting the feeders with robins, wrens, blue tits and chaffinchs all being captured and ringed. However, the highlight of the day had to be the two separate captures of a species new to being ringed at Muirshiel, long-tailed tits. These fluffy lollipop-like birds fly in groups which often means you can capture a few individuals at a time.

The long-tailed tits weren’t the only species captured at Muirshiel this weekend. The McAlindon family came to visit after hearing from a friend how much they enjoyed a previous event. The two girls came in, bird spotting books in hand and got quite a few ticks in their books as well as learning about feathers, weights and lifespans. Future Bird Ringers in the making…

The Tag-n-Track Project is supported by funding from Heritage Lottery Fund, Greater Renfrewshire and Inverclyde LEADER and Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park.
