I do many bird ringing projects, but time involved in these projects which is not my job, means I haven't been maintaining my blog. At this time of year my following projects are most active. I am still active on Twitter - @Graham Prole
Great Black-backed Gull - Adult survival RAS
50 Adults identified by colour rings, so far, in my survey area. Many of my project GB are also being reported but outside my RAS boundaries. These are used for my own statistics on survival. 27/05/2022
Mute Swans of Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow Adult survival RAS
159 Individual Adults re-sighted. Identified by Rings 27/05/2022. Where are all my Swans? I should be at well over 200 by this stage. Last year I re-sighted 258. Almost 100 missing.
House Sparrows - Adult Survival RAS
Urban, Island and Rehab Herring Gull Project
Mute Swan Nesting survey. The focus of this page. The number of nests fluctuates each year as does cygnet numbers and survival to 12 weeks. Monitoring this is part of the adult survival data. Understanding age profile v success rate and other factors is really important in monitoring this species.
