Closed Aluminium 2016 Rings

General Information

Only current year closed rings can be issued.

Closed rings are a security device put on when the chicks are in the nest and as they are always marked with the current year*, this guarantees the age of the bird.

As closed rings are also used on native species, as proof of captive breeding, they are made to high tolerances, with the current year, and normally with a size letter to indicate that correct size has been applied.

*We are currently following the C.O.M. (Confédération Ornithologique Mondiale) colour roster. C.O.M. rings are year colour coded - Our year colour for 2017 bird rings is Dark Blue

2016 Closed rings can be issued from 01-01-2016 to 31-12-2016, however, we can accept orders from private individuals (for bona fide clubs different dates apply) for 2016 rings from 01-10-2015 onwards but no 2016 rings will be issued to private individuals before 01-01-2016.

Markings

The normal markings applied to closed rings are:- Consecutive numbers; (initials if requested); current year(sideways); size letter For example:-

1 to 10 ACH [16] G

Note: Markings shown within square brackets [ ] will be oriented at 90 degrees to the consecutive numbers.

CLOSED RINGS can be issued in:-

  • PLAIN (uncoloured) aluminium with the markings impressed but not highlighted with paint.

  • PLAIN (uncoloured) aluminium "Black Filled" with the markings impressed and highlighted with Black paint.

  • STAINLESS STEEL (uncoloured) with the markings impressed but not highlighted with paint.

  • ANODISED (coloured) aluminium with the markings impressed and highlighted with contrasting paint. A different colour is issued each year, enabling the year of birth to be seen at a glance.

Colours

Some specialist clubs and societies have a colour roster of their own which differs from ours.

We are currently following the C.O.M. (Confédération Ornithologique Mondiale) colour roster. C.O.M. rings are year colour coded, with a six year sequence:

  • 2015 - Violet

  • 2016 - Orange

  • 2017 - Dark Blue

  • 2018 - Red

  • 2019 - Black

  • 2020 - Light Green

From 2021 the cycle restarts with Violet (we hope that serious breeders will try to get this increased to a 7 to 8 year roster)
