T.A.G. is jointly run within the States of Alderney's Ramsar Site by the Alderney Wildlife Trust (AWT) with support from the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) and University of Liverpool. The work has enabled Alderney to track the foraging behaviour of gannets from the Ortac using the mobile network.
You can follow the bird's movements in real time on the map when the tags are live. Please note the tags update every time the birds come within range of a 3G mobile network, and may be limited by solar battery charge. The tags will only last for a relatively short period of time, generally 4-6 weeks.
There was no tagging in 2018.
