We are a volunteer group whose mission is to study the birds of Rye Meads, Hertfordshire (United Kingdom), by trapping and ringing them, logging sightings, conducting breeding surveys, and recording all nests found. We have been studying this site since 1960 and have data on more than a quarter of a million birds ringed, and have published many papers based on this data. This website presents a summary of the birds, ringing data and activities of the Group.
Come and see warblers in the hand - these marvellous small birds use Rye Meads both for breeding and for migration stops. Booking essential - see here for details. Note - may be subject to change depending on weather conditions on the day.
