Bird ringing station Castricum
Introduction:   Birdringing     station     VRS     Castricum      is     one     of     the     so-called     Dutch "Vinkenbanen".   It   is   situated   near   the   coast   of   the   North   Sea   in   the   sandy   dunes   of Holland.   The   owner   of   the   area   is   the   water   supply   company   waterleidingbedrijf NV PWN . The station is operative since 1960.
We use four clap-nets for catching passerines like pipits, larks and finches, and for waders as well. Further we have a permanent mistnetting configuration (total of about 300 meters). They are put up in different habitats: · reedbeds along water with some shrub · edge of forest (where we use 'pull-up' nets) · scattered shrubs and low trees We have a group of 12 volunteers with a ringingpermit. We catch all year round, weather permitting, seven days per week. Menu item 'Resultaten' shows some results. Menu item 'Plaatjes' shows some pictures of caught birds. Menu item 'Kaartjes' shows some recovery maps. Our postal address is: Bergstraat 39, 1931 EN Egmond aan zee Or contact: Arnold Wijker
