Plovers

notes: 

White ring with 2 black two alpha code (on right tarsus) and metal ring (on left tarsus).

note 1: both adult and chicks are ringed in order to study the population dynamics, site fidelity and breeding success in the Delta-area, The Netherlands.

note 2: the code is repeated 3 times on the ring.

notes: 

Four colour rings plus a metal ring. A single colour ring (on right tibia) (either red or yellow), 2 colour rings on 1 tarsus and colour ring over metal ring (on other tarsus).

note 1: A red or yellow ring on the right tibia, in combination with 3 additional colour rings on tarsi, is unique to this scheme.

note 2: The project begun in 1994 by the North West Norfolk Ringing Group and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to investigate the breeding ecology and the effects of human disturbance and predation on a population breeding at Snettisham/Heacham in Norfolk.

note 3: Colours used are: red, white, yellow, black, green, blue, light-green, pale-blue.

notes: 

Single dark blue ring (on right tibia) and 1 or 2 colour rings on left tarsus, no ring or 1 colour ring (on right tarsus) and metal ring (on left tibia).

note 1: Blue ring on right tibia is unique to this scheme

note 2: this project began in 1992 to compare the behaviour of two populations of common ringed plover ; one breeding on the river habitats of Strathspey in Central Highlands of Scotland and the other in coastal habitats at Achiltibuie in Wester Ross on the north-west coast of Scotland.

note 3: Colour rings normally combination of red, orange, yellow, white, pale green, green, pale blue, blue, black

notes: 

Yellow flag with 3 black letters (on right tibia) and red ring (on left tibia).

note 1 : right tibia: yellow flag engraved in black with three letters; left tibia : red ring; left tarsus : metal ring.

note 2 : Sunnmøre Ringing Group is responsible for the project. The birds will be flagged on  migration in Makkevika, on our wader station Giske OS,  Møre & Romsdal county, Norway. Until now we have ringed 8685  (only metal ring). The ringing varies from 100 -1000 birds/year. Most of the birds are caught in mist nets in night on low tide.

note 3: most of the birds caught are young. We have recoveries in breeding time from N-Norway, N-Sweden and N-Finland. In winter i.e. from Senegal (3), Sierra Leone (1) and Ghana (2).

note 4 : The red colour rings on the left tibia used in association with Norwegian three-lettered yellow flags have faded to ‘dirty pale colour’ in many cases.

notes: 

Combination of c-rings.

note 1 : ca.100 colour-ringed in Chichester Harbour and elsewhere in The Solent since Sept 2011. They all have the following scheme :

* right tarsus : two colour-rings including doubles (colours used: dark green, white, lime, yellow, orange, red or black)
* left tarsus: BTO metal ring.

OR
