Why do we ring birds?
Black-headed Gull, originally ringed at Marsh Lane Nature Reserve, Meriden on 07/06/2017, sighted on 11/11/2018, 252km away at Gann Estuary, Dale, Pembrokeshire
Ringing birds is essential if we are to learn about how long birds live and when and where they move, questions that are vital for bird conservation.
