Order Rings
Our rings are bright blue anodised aluminium. They have a unique numbering method that complies with current legislation (COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 865/2006). They have a unique ring number and our 24hr telephone number on them, they are not year marked so can be kept for use another year. IBR rings are accepted by the WLRS for use on all birds of prey including those listed on Schedule 4. The ring number is held on the database against your name until we are told otherwise.

YOU WILL RECEIVE

1. A string(s) of 10 closed rings (split strings of 5/5 can be supplied for those species requiring different male and female ring sizes, by phone order only). Details on how to fit them and how to complete the provided paperwork.

2. A White Ring Form (one per ring)
Easy to fill in with the hatch date - return this to us, or phone / email us with the details when the ring is put on the bird to receive a Captive Breeding Certificate (in two parts) both parts to be signed, the top part passed to the new keeper and the lower part returned to us. The lower part is then archived for future reference if required.

If you ring your birds with IBR rings you are giving them a future. Whenever the bird flies, it is wearing a telephone number on a unique ring so if it is found it can be returned to keeper.IBR rings are traceable. By using IBR rings you are giving the bird the service and care it deserves for the rest of its life, you are also promoting and helping to protect the future of falconry. The IBR have been supplying rings since 1994 and we continue to be the only efficient raptor return scheme available. Give the bird a flying start. New laws state that rings must be unique. This does not mean AB123. These cause major headaches. Many people can have the same initials or use the same numbers. Our rings have a non repeated number together with IBR and our telephone number. This makes them unique. If rings are not unique, you may need to microchip the bird to sell it or acquire an Article 10 where appropriate.

WHAT DOES IT COST?

It costs £10 per string of 10 rings. IF you follow the protocol and inform us of whom you sell your birds to, we will register the bird on behalf of the NEW KEEPER for 12 months for a £5 fee which YOU can add on to the price of the bird. This will prevent you from being contacted in the future should the bird go missing.

What price do you put on the future safety of a bird?

Rings are supplied on the STRICT proviso that the IBR ringing protocol is adhered to and that the rings are for the purchaser's own use.

Failure to follow protocol could result in you being refused rings at a later date.
