After over a year working in northern Scotland I am returning to Newcastle and able to help John with the running of the bird ringing at Souter Bird Obs. I have missed the ringing there, although ringing in Scotland this summer was amazing with several broods of raptors being ringed. I cant wait for the autumn migration!!

Here are a few pics of the birds ringed in Scotland.
