In order to help our scientists spot her in a large flock during migration she was colour ringed. Her colour ring combination is blue over yellow on both legs.

Jibek’s satellite tag number is 055022.

Jibek’s amazing journey was indicated by a purple pin on the main Follow the Flock map but she is no longer transmitting.
