Recent Ringing Recoveries

Monday, July 29th 2013

The interactive map below shows a small selection of the ringing recoveries we have had over the past few months.  Red lines represent birds that were ringed elsewhere and then controlled at Foxglove, blue lines represent birds ringed at Foxglove and controlled by another ringing group.  You can zoom in on the map; to find out more about each recovery click on a line.

Recoveries can provide valuable information about birds including migration, longevity, mortality, population growth, site fidelity and feeding behaviour.  The data is all collated by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) which is then used for scientific study.
