2009 sees the celebration of 100 years of bird ringing in Britain and Ireland, and this guide highlights some of the major achievements of the Scheme over that time.
This guide is an ideal training tool for ringers, explaining how and why we ring birds. It contains numerous examples of how ringing has contributed to conservation science and research, and how it helps us understand population changes by providing information on survival and recruitment. The guide is also a great introduction to bird ringing for non-ringers, not only highlighting the Scheme’s successes, but also explaining why we still need to keep ringing today.
