Welcome to my blog.
The first thing I'll say is that this blog has nothing to do with bells (church bells, hand bells or whiskey).
This is a blog where I hope to record my bird ringing and other birding activities here in Orkney and further afield. I may also occassionally post something non bird related.
If you don't know what bird ringing is all about then you can find out more here: http://www.bto.org/volunteer-surveys/ringing/ringing-scheme
I'm currently a trainee bird ringer and have had my trainee permit for about 20 months now. In that time I have ringed just over 1000 birds of 49 species.
Hopefully you will be able to follow my progress as I work towards my C permit and learn more about ringing and birds along the way.
