Sightings

Much of the value of colour ringing comes from re-sighting reports by birdwatchers and members of the public. We welcome all reports of the birds that we have colour-ringed to allow us to build up a life history of the movements of each bird. Repeat sightings at the same location are just as valuable as those from new or distant sites.

Please use the form on the right to let us know when and where you have seen one of these birds. We will respond as soon as possible, usually within a week, with details of where and when the bird was ringed and a link to a page on this website showing a map of its movements.
