January Ringing Recoveries

Monday, January 27th 2014

This interactive map below shows some of the ringing recoveries we have received from the BTO this month.  Red lines represent birds ringed elsewhere and controlled (re-caught) by the Swaledale Ringing Group, while blue lines represent birds ringed by the Swaledale Ringing Group and controlled elsewhere.  You can zoom into the map and to find out more information about a recovery click on the coloured line.

From just one session ringing at a Sand Martin colony along the banks of the River Swale we have had three French recoveries.  Two of the Sand Martins had been ringed along the French coastline in 2012, and the third was ringed by the Swaledale Ringing Group and then controlled in France as it migrated to its African wintering grounds.  In addition to this we have also had a French recovery of a Sedge Warbler.  This was ringed as a juvenile bird on the French Coast in 2012 and then controlled at Foxglove Covert on the 16th June 2013.
