Abstract: This report covers the ringing activities of the Valletta Bird Ringing Scheme for the years 1994-1996. Ghadira nature reserve continued to be manned regularly during these three years resulting in several interesting retraps and recoveries. Most of the waterbirds were ringed there. The Scheme continued to take part in the Italian project Piccole Isole, which is aimed at monitoring spring migration in the Central Mediterranean. Birdlife Malta's ringing site on Kemmuna was again used for this project and the site was manned daily for a whole month (16 Apr -15 May) each year. As in former years, annual visits to Filfla were organised to monitor the populations of European Storm-petrel Hydrobates pelagicus and Yellow-legged Gull Larus cachinnans, while the accessible colonies of Cory's Shearwater Calonectris diomedea on the main islands continued to be monitored regularly.
