Happy Birthday to us!

100 years ago today, a Lapwing chick was ringed at Sand of Forvie in Aberdeenshire - the first bird ever ringed by the British and Irish Ringing Scheme.

36 million birds later, and we were out this morning ringing Starlings with the BBC, celebrating the Centenary event. This was for our local news, but we'll try to get the film up on the blog soon.....

For more info on what's happening near you in the Centenary year, check out the BTO website.
