Exactly. The ring number is like a car registration plate. It's not got your name and number on but if all up to date it will lead straight back to you. If you care for the bird then it will be all up to date.

Why content yourself with a ring number?
If a hawk finds itself being taken from a larson trap on a saturday, you're potentially putting a non-falconer in charge of its care for at least two days.
If you really want that hawk back in a hurry, why doesn't everyone have visible contact details that can be used immediately?

Good point. I've not really thought about it before and didn't think of that kind of scenario. Before I saw this last reply it was on my mind to look into it. It does make sense.

We have a red ring on all our birds with my Mobil number on, so if RSPCA or member of the public picks them up, with out to much trouble they have a point of contact. I get them from AC Hughes, have done this for years.
