The East Africa Natural History Society Bird Ringing Organization started ringing birds at the Eastleigh Sewage Works, Nairobi, in 1960. Brief reports have been published on the birds ringed up to the middle of 1961(Blencowe,1960and 1962).This report covers all activities up to the middle of 1966. Table I which is divided into two lists, palaearctic migrants and African birds, shows the total numbers of each species recorded as ringed on all ringing returns received to date. In most cases the returns cover the period to 30th June, 1966, but, Prof. D. A. Zimmerman's return up to August, 1966,has been included for the sake of completeness and because of the interesting species recorded. Several returns are still outstanding and those concerned who read this report are asked to send them in as soon as possible.
