Colour ringing Coots.

I'm now back from my holidays and was out this morning catching Coot. Myself and Steve Christmas have started colour ringing Coot in the North West area to look at winter site fidelity, dispersal to breeding / moulting sites and to get more understanding on Coot movements.

Each bird ringed will carry three colour rings + a BTO metal ring.

Colors used -- Light Blue, Dark Blue, White, Black, Green, Red, Orange, Yellow, Pink and Purple.

Birds are being ringed with 2 colour rings on the Left Leg and a colour ring above the metal ring on the Right leg.

Any sightings of these birds would be gratefully received - sightings can be sent to me at kanebrides''@'' or reported that - All sightings will be acknowledged with full ringing and resighting information.
