Ringing Red-billed Chough in Ouessant

| May 2006 -> 2013 |

Ouessant is a small island (1541 ha), 20 km from the western tip of Brittany, France. It shelters one of the cores of the Brittany Chough population, with an average of 13 breeding. Since 1996, Christian Kerbiriou studies the natal dispersal and emancipation of juveniles. A maximum of them are caught in their nest and ringed with a unique colour combination.
