Goose Fat Anyone?

See you there!


Dead Ringer

Just filled in my first Ringed Bird Recovery report for ...sadly posthumous.

Thank you very much for reporting a ringed bird. Ring recoveries provide important information on the survival and movements of birds and we value every report.

You have made your report via a website operated by EURING on behalf of all European bird ringing schemes. Your report has been forwarded to the Scheme that issued the ring that you found. They will determine the ringing details of the bird and will then contact you to tell you when and where the bird was ringed. If you need to make any enquiries about your report please contact the relevant scheme, whose details are given below.

Please keep hold of the ring in case we need to check details later.

The information that you reported is listed below. If you find any errors in this information please inform the Scheme directly.
