I have been very lucky this year to go out ringing (mist netting to catch birds for surveying and monitoring) with a local ringing group in Nottinghamshire.
Spurred by my recent outing to the Lincolnshire coast, I have written a short piece on whether bird ringing is useful in conservation. I promise I have tried to be as unbiased as possible to voice the different opinions on this matter.
Hope you find it interesting! Thank you
