Abstract: This ringing report covers the two-year period 1975-76 during which a total of 19,685 birds were ringed. Comparing this figure with that of the two previous corresponding years (1973-74) one notes an increase of 5,350 birds. This may be attributed to the increase in the number of ringers (13 at the end of 1976), as well as to the growing expertise and effort on the part of the few dedicated ones. The number of birds ringed in 1975 and 1976 was 10,176 of 86 species and 9,509 of 90 species respectively; the former being the highest for one year since ringing was started in autumn 1965. There was a slight decrease in the total of 1976 (667 less than in 1975) but an increase of 4 in the number of species ringed. Since 1965 the grand total stands at 64,1-45 birds of 126 species as on 31.12.1976.
