In November 2016 following a successful trial of a thermal imager, the group were successful in a funding bid, one was purchased for the purpose of monitoring and ringing birds within the West Midlands region.


We have used this piece of equipment since and have found it to be a complete game changer and a positive step forward for monitoring wildlife.


Below you will find a link to our most recent Magazine article for BTO's Life Cycle, BBC Midlands today programme and further links to reports we have completed showcasing different aspects of its use.


We have teamed up with Simpson Brothers Gun Shop (POC Ian) to bring the cost down for Bird Ringers. If you wish to purchase one then please contact us on our email address for the discount code.
