Interests & Responsibilities
Ros has been an avid bird ringer since 2012, gaining experience with passerines, non-passerines, seabirds, waders, mist netting, whoosh netting, cannon-netting, special methods, Schedule 1 species, CES, RAS, ringing expeditions, bird observatories and ringing in foreign schemes. Her ornithological work has led to her working in Australia and New Zealand as well as England, Scotland and Wales. Since graduating in 2014, she has monitored seabirds on Skomer Island (Pembrokeshire) for three seasons and worked in the Southern Hemisphere October-March studying passerines and seabirds.
Ros is an active ringer, training for her cannon-net endorsement and is hoping to gain a training endorsement soon. Her ringing experience is broad, covering most endorsement types, species groups, ringing techniques and catching methods.
