Ringing courses for beginners

These courses cater for newcomers who want their first experience of bird ringing. The courses provide one to one tuition on safely handling and ringing birds and also a variety of catching techniques.

You will be guided through the whole ringing process by experienced BTO ringers and this is a great way to get into ringing and find out what it entails. People without any previous experience of bird ringing are preferred, so come along and find out more.

The BTO also provides courses for registered permit holders. More details of these are available from the restricted Ringer's area.
