Colour Ring Reading

The reading and reporting of colour ringed birds can be an exciting part of everyone's birding. Wondering where the bird was ringed, where it was seen previously and where will it be seen next.

If you see a colour ringed bird, please report it to this link as all this information is collated and helps us to understand their movement and longevity. http://blx1.bto.org/euring/main/
