Owl ringing provides important information that underpins conservation work for owls in the same way as for all other birds. The bird ringing scheme in Britain is run by the British Trust for Ornithology and the vast majority of ringers are volunteers.
Records of great longevity show that ringing has no impact on the birds’ health or survival.
