Ringed grey herons recovery map. Purple dots mean Ringed in Britain & Ireland, Found Here; and orange dots mean Ringed Here, Found in Britain & Ireland

From the British Trust for Ornithology:

Summary of all Ringing Recoveries for Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea)

This page presents information on recoveries of Grey Heron that have been ringed or recovered in Britain & Ireland. The map shows all records of birds ringed in Britain & Ireland and recovered abroad (purple) and birds ringed abroad and recovered in Britain & Ireland (orange).

The table then summarises the number of birds that have moved between different counties of Britain & Ireland and between other countries and then gives a selection of recoveries. First are listed the number of birds found in each county, then the number of birds ringed in each county. In the next two columns are listed the number of birds ringed abroad and found in Britain & Ireland and the then number of birds ringed in Britain & Ireland and found abroad.

For longevity and distance records an individual is only included once, for reports to and from countries an individual may be reported multiple times, particulary if it bears a colour mark or other means of identification in the field. Some older (mostly foreign) recoveries are also included where these were received in the year reported on. For full details of how these birds have been selected click here.

For other information, have a look at the BirdFacts page for Grey Heron.
