Movements & longevity
This page contains links to maps of some of the long-distance movements of birds ringed by MRG. Just click on the link to open the relevant page.
All of the maps were produced using DMAP.
From 1994-96, MRG members at Woolston participated in the Network on European-African Songbird Migration, funded by the European Science Foundation. This project established collaborative protocols (published in the manual of field methods) and co-ordinated ringing across 50 sites in 18 countries in Europe and Africa, with standardised measurements taken on a variety of migrant species, mostly warblers. More information on the results from this project, with particular emphasis on the contribution of birds from Woolston, is given here: ESF Migration Network.
The BTO has a list of the longest-lived ringed bird for every species ringed in Britain and Ireland: click here. This page will soon contain examples of some retraps of birds ringed by MRG, showing how ringing can illuminate their life histories.
