Welcome to Wheatear.biz. 

Suppliers and Manufacturers of Bird Ringing / Bird Banding Equipment.  If you do not find what your are looking here please contact us info@wheatear.biz.  We will be more than happy to help you.

Since the Mid 1980's we have been carrying out Bird Ringing on a voluntary basis for the British Trust for Ornithology.  This has primarily been through the Bird Ringing and Nest Records Schemes.  Since 1997 Bird Ringing has been carried out as part of the Huddleston & Jackson Bird Ringing Partnership operating in the York Area.

Our main area of expertise is in the supply of Bird Ringing / Bird Banding Equipment to Licensed Bird Ringers through a dedicated and continuously expanding Ringing Equipment section.  Other items that you may find useful for Bird Ringing,  Outdoor or Home use in the Accessories and Equipment sections.

UK Operating Pest Control businesses operating under the Natural England General License may also purchase a restricted range of traps for Live Trap & Release use only.  This is subject to our vetting process.  Please contact us for advise : info@wheatear.biz.

We manufacture a majority of the traps ourselves.  This enables us to manufacture bespoke traps to customer specifications and modify our current products to suit your needs.  Over the years we have taken traditional trap designs such as the Spring Trap and made improvements to make the traps more effective.  One of our main aims when designing traps is to make them Light Weight and Portable.  As a result our Duck Traps,  Potter Traps and Chardonneret Traps all fold flat.  Our Sectional Traps have also been developed with the same requirements.

Our latest development is the Modular Trap (Coming to the Web Site Soon - contact us for prices now).  Again,  it is light weight, portable and folds flat.  The Modular Trap is primarily designed as a Multi Funnel Trap (Similar to an Ottenby Trap) that can be configured to maximise catching potential.  Used with baffles, this design will be suitable for shorebirds and wildfowl along a waters edge.

If you are looking for a Whoosh Net or Drag Net please contact us with your requirements info@wheatear.biz.

In additional to all of these traps we have a wide range of Mist Nets and Decoy Birds available.
