Abstract:In the years 1960-1979 more than 2.5 million birds were ringed in Sweden. For 34 selected passerine species the annual ringing totals were analysed. The ringing numbers indicated longterm trends of increase or decrease in about one fourth of the species treated. Species with a clearly increasing trend are Acrocephalus scirpaceus, Hippolais icterina and Carpodacus erythrinus. A decreasing trend was obvious in Delichon urbica, Phoenicurus phoenicurus, Muscicapa striata, Carduelis cannabina and Anthus pratensis.
