About WWRG

The Wash Wader Research Group is a group of volunteer bird ringers dedicated to studying the wading birds that live in, or pass through, The Wash on the east coast of England. We undertake fieldwork approximately once a month, mainly at weekends, but with longer trips during the main migratory period in the summer and early autumn. Members of WWRG live across Britain & Ireland, and even further afield, and the Group welcomes volunteer ringers from home and abroad who are interested in taking part in the fieldwork.

The BTO website contains more information on why we ring birds and why we use colour marks on our study species.
