Bird Ringing At Sandy – By Christopher Foster

We went to RSPB Sandy and saw Bird Ringing.  The birds were weighed and measured and their tail feathers were looked at.  Each bird got its own ring with its own number.  We saw two great tits, one robin and one gold crest being ringed.

These two people are recording the details.They asked if anyone would like to let the bird go once they had weighed it. I let the Great tit go.  The Goldcrest only weighed 5g.
