Has anyone tried anything like these and if so are there any issues? Could double up as a bewit. Work out about 35p each but have to buy 100 @ ú15 odd and then heat shrink tube ú3.70 a metre so initially an outlay of less than ú20 and can do about 20 birds before you need to buy any more heat shrink.

With your phone number on and in different colours so could possibly identify a bird if someone has taken a pic but not caught it

They're very retentive, but a hawk has to be well made in the first place if it's expected to be good later.
As the old saying goes, 'If at first made well, ever after made well' (or words to that effect).

Tony, I'm sure you commented on this thread about your phone number on your birds but I can't find it flicking through the pages. Anyway I think these will have the same result. I'll add the web address shortly if anyone interested

I'm sure you're right.

Yes, I can think of no faster way to be reunited with a hawk that having your mobile number clearly visible in some form or another (I prefer having it on the anklet, rather than as an additional ring or tag).

Best wishes,

Tony.
