The last post

Its interesting how the administration of ringing schemes vary from country to country. Take the Icelandic scheme for example if you have a relevant ring or darvic number you are able to get an instant answer to your query by interrogating their online system. Contrast this with the Belgium scheme which still operates on the snail mail approach. The above letter arrived in yesterdays post providing details of a black-headed gull noted from Tintern in early 2014.
