The Southern Colour Ringing Group is running a project to satellite track duck; specifically Shoveler and Gadwall. The project covers three areas in London - the Lee Valley, the Colne Valley and south-west London reservoirs.
Birds are caught either with cannon nets or in static duck traps. We also fit colour rings to both species (black with white letters and a two character code). There are many more bird-watchers looking for colour-ringed birds, so this greatly improves our chances of understanding the movements of the birds from this project.
