Jack Snipe Ringing

Some of you might know that I take part in Ringing! Different ringing projects run across the year but as Winter approaches, Jack Snipe ringing has started again. This is done at two places, one place called Cathkin Marshes (Scottish Wildlife Trust) and another called Windlaw Marsh.

I was out with the Clyde ringing group today and we managed to catch 19 out of the 25 Jack Snipes seen! They are amazing!
