Confederation Ornithogique Mondiale - COM I.D CODED RINGS

                                                  

(COM rings are not kept in stock and early order is advisable)

 

The British Bird Council issue COM closed rings as an alternative in addition to the standard brown BBC closed rings.


COM rings are year colour coded, with a six year sequence:

2016 - Orange

2017 - Dark Blue

2018 - Red

2019 - Black

2020 - Light Green

2021 - Violet


From 2022 the cycle restarts with Violet etc.

 

BBC COM rings are only issued to members, they are marked BC, followed by a registered ID code, year date, size code and issue number.  Each order of your rings has to be run off by the manufacturer to bear your registered ID.  This makes them a little more expensive to purchase and also means a little more time needs to be allowed for delivery of your order.

 

We are supplying more of these rings year on year as birds correctly ringed with these rings are accepted throughout Europe for exhibition and sale.

 

The year colour code generally makes their age known at a glance. The registered ID code allows quick identification of the breeder as no-one else will have your ID code - in effect crediting the breeder’s personal achievements.

Rings are dispatched in padded envelopes, postal damage is unlikely, but rings should be checked on arrival. 

 

Please note a slight misalignment of digits or a slight flaking of white inlay does occur in manufacture and should not be a matter of concern as it is totally different to damage caused when a ring is tampered with.

 

CHANGES TO ROYAL MAIL DELIVERY SERVICES

 

Due to changes made by Royal Mail our post does not arrive until mid – late afternoon. 

This will unfortunately cause potential delays in our service.

   

Can you please bear this in mind when placing your ring orders.
