CODES E-SERIE

On this page with E-codes used by Black-headed gull and Common gull, here a list with E-codes because I am the coördinator of the use of this codes. If you will use colour rings by Black-headed gulls or Common gulls in The Netherlands or Belgium, you must write to me first.

For rings with 4 inscriptions the first letter stands for the country where a ringed gull comes from.
For the Black-headed- and Common gulls from the The Netherlands and Belgium the first letter is always an E.
Below this page you see a map with the first letter from the 4 letter/number combinations and the country where a ringed gull comes from.
