Appeal for colour ring sightings!
Have you seen a colour ringed Curlew? Please help us to find our birds.
Colour ringing is an important method to track and gather data about threatened bird species. Ornithologist Tony Cross has been working to colour ring Curlew for several years now, and we are keen to hear about any sightings you may have. Even if you cannot read the ring yourself, knowing the location means we can send someone with a telescope to take a closer look. This year is particularly important, as we are hoping that some of our headstarted Curlew will return.
If you see a colour ringed curlew whilst out on your daily exercise please report it to Tony Cross: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rings are located just above the knee of the bird
