Ringing Totals

Ringing provides a huge amount of scientific data about birds which is difficult to obtained in other ways. Individual birds are identifiable and information collected on where they go, how long they live timing of breeding, timing of moult and much more. With the advent of the digital age data can be gather very quickly and modern analytical techniques allow us to build up very good models of bird populations. In conjunction with other surveys indexes are produce that tell us which species are doing well and those struggling. The index of the national bird population is published annually and provide pointers to the well being or otherwise of the many and diverse habitats that make up the United Kingdom.

We try to ring as many birds as possible including targeting species as required by the BTO; where we can.
