Several couples of Stonechat breed In Haarzuilens, Utrecht, The Netherlands. VRS de Haar is conducting RAS research on these birds, looking to learn more about survival of these birds. This species is very suitable for colour ringing since the long legs and its behaviour make resighting and reporting easy. Some of the birds in this project breed in an area that was defined as "temporary nature" waiting for the development of a new residential area. We hope to find these birds at other places in the vicinity of Haarzuilens when this area has been developed.
The position of the metal ring is important for the identification of an individual.
