More on the ringing

A select group of our hard working local volunteers had their efforts rewarded by being given a unique chance to get 'up close and personal' with this year's osprey chicks during the recent ringing.

New volunteer Caroline Blackie (in picture), along with Roger Scott and Bob Rowles, both of whom have been involved with the Osprey Watch Centres since they first opened in 2003, were some of the lucky few to witness the ringing. Andrew MacDonald, Andrew Scurfield and Nigel Palmer were given special recognition for their outstanding contribution to the project during the 2007 season.
