Bird Ringing Demonstration
PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE - POSTPONED FROM 10 SEPT DUE TO BAD WEATHER FORECAST
Fancy seeing some of the Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park birds up close and personal? Then join Bill Haines, a London based bird ringer, to see wild birds in the hand and hear about how the national ringing programme works. We will be able to show you how birds are safely trapped, ringed and their measurements taken, before they are released unharmed back into the Park. You will also learn how bird ringing aids conservation and our knowledge of birds migratory patterns.
Bill is a consultant ornithologist and has been an active birder for over forty years, having cut his teeth at the original Barn Elms Reservoirs (now the WWT London Wetland Centre). He has been a professional ornithologist for much of his working life and has worked for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) and the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT), amongst other conservation bodies.
