Literature Review.

Recovery Round-up.
Some of the interesting recoveries from this issue are:


This section is prepared with the co-operation of the Secretary, Australian 
Bird and Bat Banding Schemes, Australian Nature Conservation Agency. The 
recoveries are only a selection of the thousands received each year; they are 
not a complete list and should not be analysed in full or part without prior 
consent of the banders concerned. Longevity and distance records refer to the 
ABBBS unless otherwise stated. The distance is the shortest distance in 
kilometres along the direct line joining the place of banding and recovery; the 
compass direction refers to the same direct line. (There is no implication 
regarding the distance flown or the route followed by the bird). Where 
available ABBBS age codes have been included in the banding data.

  Recovery or longevity items may be submitted directly to me whereupon their 
merits for inclusion will be considered.
