note 1 : used letters are : A, C, E, G, H, J, K.

note 2 : used numbers are : 0, 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 6 , 7 , 9.

note 3 : birds are ringed at several places in the Swiss Alps in summer (grey rings) and winter (red rings) and in the Eastern Pyrenees in winter (green rings).
Starting year of colour ringing is 2016.

note 4 : SILVER is not distinguishable from WHITE! Therefore, we coloured the official aluminium rings blue when the silver plastic rings are used. Thus, we have silver/grey with black alphanumeric code on one tarsus and blue aluminium on the other tarsus.
