Bird ringing

The Zwin is a hotspot for migratory birds. Researchers obviously recognised this a long time ago. For decades now birds have been ringed in the Zwin Nature Park.

During our bird ringing demonstrations, a ringer expertly explains why the bird is being ringed. It is a unique opportunity to learn a lot about the life of birds and to see them close up.

!The ringing of the birds depends greatly on the weather. It is possible that ringing might not be possible on some days. We will publish the latest news on our website and on our Facebook page to tell you when the ringer will be present!

Every weekend in September: 

Ringing will take place in the ringing hut/story hut in the cabin trail, always from 10:00 to 12:00 hrs.
Depending on the type of weather, the ringing may end earlier than 12:00 hrs, so make sure to get there on time if you want to see everything!
