Just in time for the height of the spring migration on 5 April 2016 the first bird was marked with an Austrian ring.

The first bird to do the honours was a Eurasian blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla), which now wears a small aluminium ring marked "T 000001" and the inscription "KLIVV.AT AUSTRIA“ on its leg.
