Thanks a million...

16 Mar 2011

To the 2700 volunteer ringers who helped set a new record. A whopping 1,047,092 birds were ringed in 2010 – the first time the million mark has been achieved in Britain and Ireland in a single year, giving a tremendous boost for bird conservation.

A Yellowhammer in Aberdeenshire and a Coal Tit in Gwent, both ringed at 2.00pm on 5 December hold claim to the millionth bird. Read the latest ringing report.
