Abstract: This report covers the two-year period 1986-87 during which period 22,122 birds were ringed. By end of 1987 the grand total of birds ringed since ringing started in 1965 stood at 175,571 of 155 species and 2 hybrids. The number of birds ringed in 1986 was 11,414 of 92 species, three of which, namely Little Egret, White-winged Black tern and Paddyfield warbler, were new additions to the ringing list. It was also the first time that the Paddyfield warbler was recorded in the Maltese islands. In 1987 the number of birds ringed was 10,708 of 99 species. Three other new species were added to the ringing list - Squacco Heron, Arctic warbler and Pallas's warbler, the latter two being also new to the list of birds occurring in Malta.
