Hi

I just checked the the phone number on the earliest IBR registration document I have and the number on the rings I have in stock the number is the same and has never changed ?

What phone number are you trying to call ?

Confirm the number you are ringing. the number on the rings has never changed and will never change. it is a national number that comes straight through to me - 0870 608 8500 - the only number that has changed is the office number. the old one starts 01748...... the new one is 0161 790 5613. hope this answers your question.

then you can get all their up to date information
Already in the pipeline. We are having a new database built which should be ready in the next few weeks. It is internet based and so I can access it where ever I am which will help when people are reporting lost and found birds plus I don't have to be tied to the office 24/7. (Good excuse to buy an iPad!!) As soon as we have this up and running we will be advising clients that those who are members will be able to access their own records to update their personal details and bird lists. We are in the process of collating email addresses and so we can correspond with members and don't forget we do have a website full of information and recent news - www.ibr.org.uk

Equally, if someone loses a hawk in my locality on 433/434 I will happily go out and try to assist in retrieving their hawk. Your service is extremely valuable and has a proven track record.

All I would add is please don't stop.

Don't worry. You will have a choice and we do send out reminders when subs are due. Babs

Unfortunately, I have to pick a quiet time to go on the forum which isn't very often. I guess you will have now seen my reply to your previous question? Everyone has a choice. The IBR is purely voluntary and if you are responsible enough to use telemetry then 9/10 you don't need to use the IBR. I don't agree with the comment about not being able to help birds without telemetry. the majority of the 5800 birds we have got back did not have a tag. Like I said, its your choice but we are always willing to help whether your bird is registered or not.
Babs.

I have to disagree with this statement big time.
Well done for getting you gos back, but any extra ways of helping find your lost bird or ways for others to find you if they recover your bird, can only be good.
Having contact details on the bird, weather on anklets, jesses, ID tag or ring can only increase the chances of your bird being recovered and returned to you.
Yes, flying with a working tag is a must in my opinion, but depending on the circumstances, it is by no way a guarentee you will find your bird.
The IBR provide a service that no others do, they not only help co-ordinate the rescue and recovery of countless lost falconry birds, they also arrange temporary experienced homes while the owner is found, something that in itself may save your birds life, and they give the public an easy contact point for help and advice if they find or see a lost bird.
I remember life before Jenny Wray started the IBR, and I can assure you, the chances of recovering a wayward bird, especially if it has gone a long way is a 100% better than it was then.
It is an optional service so everyone can make up their own mind, but for ú5 a year I find it amazing people say it is not worth it.
