BSG have been catching and ringing birds at the Oxford office since February 2010. This work has been undertaken with permission from Worton Farms, and is carried out by appropriately licensed and experienced bird ringers (led by Owain Gabb). All data collected is supplied to the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). The information is therefore available to be used in scientific research projects, while the ringing study provides training opportunities for some of BSG’s ecologists and detailed information to the farm on their local bird community.
An annual report is produced detailing the results of the on-going study.
