Exciting stuff as the famous Ernest Blezard habitat bird cases are installed for #Tullie125 #exhibition. Here red kite, southern puffins, kestrel chicks, merlins shown. Recreating the fondly remembered bird room atmosphere of older times. https://t.co/0EPsd4Mj3S

Best ever farmland bird ringing day - phenomenal 142 Yellowhammers caught inc a 5 year old with c700 Yellowhammers on site! 400 Tree Sparrows present with 31 ringed but 44 retrapped originally ringed as nestlings across the landscape. I think working with the farmers is working! https://t.co/5ZCAghpSBX CumbriaBDC photo

We had a great first #Winter #Invertebrate talk last night with Ian Beddison. A fascinating presentation followed by soup, cake & a good natter! This was one of our favourite of Ian's photos, beautiful Ruby-tailed wasps found in County #Durham 😍 @NorthPennAONB @HeritageFundNE https://t.co/1xbUFOHTbO CumbriaBDC photo
