Online Ringing Reports

These summaries provide information on the numbers of birds ringed and reports (recoveries) of ringed birds received for the whole Ringing Scheme, covering Britain and Ireland, as well as broken down by country and county. Information is included on birds reported to BTO during the selected year, although some will have been found in earlier years.

Useful Notes: Counties are currently based on old (1970s) boundaries for technical reasons. Recoveries for a particular year are only shown if they were received by the end of April of the following year and some old foreign recoveries have not yet been computerised so do not appear in the summaries. When either the site of ringing or of finding is confidential the coordinates given are deliberately inaccurate. Maps are only provided for movements of 20 km or further.
