Winding down at Wyken

Yes, I know things are just getting going on the migration ringing front, but here at Wyken in Suffolk I'm coming to the end of my ringing projects for good. Why? Well, at the end of April I'm moving to the Isle of Canna, in the Small Isles, off the west coast of Scotland!

I've just joined the Highland Ringing Group, who have been undertaking seabird ringing on the island for a number of years, and I hope to join them on some of their ringing sessions when they come over for their week-long trips. But I'll also be looking at covering other bird groups on the island, such as passerines (a possible Twite project has been suggested), and waders - lots of breeding Oystercatchers, Ringed Plovers, Lapwing, Snipe, and a few Curlew.

I'm going to keep this blog going, so you'll be kept up to date on my ringing activities on Canna.
