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.

RSPB Nestbox Watch
Saturday 20th May - 1-3pm.
We will be leading a tour of the reserve to check the contents of all the nestboxes. If there are chicks of the right age, we will fit rings to them, and explain more about the birds that use these boxes and what we hope to gain by ringing them. See here for details.
