Holme Bird Observatory

When in the UK I was very lucky when Steve arranged for me to spend a few days at Holme Bird Observatory with Jed Andrews (the warden) and his wife, and Sophie (bird ringer at the observatory) where they catch and ring birds for studying migration. This is just one of many observatories studying birds in the UK.

Bird ringing is fantastic. Maybe the some of the warblers and swallows we ringed at Holme might go to the Gambia this winter. I find migration very interesting and am still learning all about it. In Gambia we get migrants from Europe and from southern Africa.
