Birds which are ringed/banded and then are either re-captured or found dead away from the original location are known as recoveries. Recoveries of ringed birds further our studies of bird migration, adding to our knowledge of migration routes or flyways. They also help to identify areas which may be of conservation concern because of their importance to migrating birds as stopover or wintering areas. 

North West Norfolk Ringing Group have hundreds of these recoveries in our database and you can view maps of these  some have been of exceptional interest
