Essex Birdwatching Society spent an interesting & enjoyable morning with David Wilkinson down at EWT Two Tree Island Nature Reserve. David is a skilled and enthusiastic ringer, today he and his colleagues managed to ring Common Whitethroat, Eurasian Reed Warbler, Eurasian Blackcap and even a Great Spotted Woodpecker. It was an honour for the Essex Birdwatching Society to present a cheque to help with the upkeep of his nets and other equipment.

If you have a similar project that involves the conservation of birds in Essex, it doesn’t have to involve ringing, then please get in touch with us at essexbirdwatchingsociety@gmail.com
