Bird Ringing Demonstrations

A special opportunity for a close up look at some of the birds which make their homes here at Dunwich Heath.

Join ringers from Waveney Bird Club who will be on site ringing some of the birds every Tuesday 8am - 12pm until November permitting!

Much of what we know about how long birds live and how far they travel has been revealed by the British Trust for Ornithology’s ‘Ringing Scheme’ which gathers information about bird survival rates and their movements both in the UK and across the globe. The bird ringing demonstration days are a great opportunity to see some of the best-loved birds up close and to find out more about this important conservation work.

N.B. this event is highly dependent on suitable weather conditions. Times may vary or the event may be cancelled at short notice, so please contact National Trust Dunwich Heath if you are travelling especially!
