We’ve seen the first colour ringed roller in Hungary. The adult female was ringed by Béla Tokody and Orsolya Kiss near Szatymaz in 2011 on the 22nd of June near Szatymaz .

The main advantage of using  colour rings is that the ring code is easily identifiable from a distance with the use of a scope or a camera, allowing us to avoid capturing the birds. The bird on the picture has been proved to be using the same home range as 4 years ago, it was ringed  in the same area.
