Undead Ringers

Secure within their nest on high

In sight of Dad and Mum

When up a ladder silently

The wildlife ringers come

In a sack the fledglings placed

While far up overhead

The parents sound a special call

So they will just play dead

The rings attached with colour codes

Now all will know that they

Originate from this reserve

Which treasures each osprey.
