Recent Ringing Recoveries

Friday, February 27th 2015

The interactive map below shows a selection of the ringing recoveries that we have received during February 2015. Red lines represent birds that were ringed elsewhere and then controlled at Foxglove. Blue lines represent birds ringed by the Swaledale Ringing Group at one of our sites and then controlled by another ringing group. You can zoom in on the map; to find out more about each recovery click on a line.

Many of these recoveries have come from the two ringing expeditions last summer to Cape Wrath. Particularly noteworthy is the 24 year old Guillemot that was first ringed as a chick in 1990 on the Isle of Canna and controlled by our ringers at Leac Buidhe last summer.
