Abstract

Robinson (2010) describes a model for recoveries of Sandwich Terns Sterna sandvicensis. As is often the case in the UK, the numbers of birds ringed each year, at least until recently, are not fully computerised. The model assumes a fixed proportion of birds in different age classes. We show that the proportion can be estimated from the data, improving accuracy in estimates of survival.
