Tune in to an online live bird ringing session this Saturday! To celebrate World Migratory Bird Day which occurred earlier this month, we will be hosting a livestream of a bird ringing session from our Għadira Nature Reserve.
What better way to celebrate the autumn bird migration than with a demonstration of this important scientific study which we carry out at our nature reserves!
Bird ringing is an excellent research technique which provides an abundance of data to help us understand bird migration, longevity of life, population sizes and much more.
Bird ringing in Malta is carried out exclusively by the BirdLife Malta Ringing Scheme which is the only recognized EURING partner in Malta. Be sure to join our livestream and learn more about this exciting field of research that BirdLife Malta has been carrying out since 1965! It will be an opportunity to see birds up close whilst they are being ringed and there will also be the opportunity to ask questions to our licensed bird ringers over the event platform.
Follow us on Facebook to be notified when the bird ringing livestream starts! The session will be shown live in this event.
