Birdwatching & Beyond

This Saturday, group members Brian Hopkins, Pete Fearon and Jack Taylor, gave a ringing demonstration to participants of Edge Hill University's Birdwatching & Beyond course. The session at Mere Sands Wood was a massive success as participants were able to see Bullfinch, Reed Bunting, Brambling and Tree Sparrow amongst other more common woodland birds up close and personal.
