Recent recoveries & controls

In the latest batch are 4 Barn Owls including a 4 year old bird and one which moved 31km into Leicestershire. A couple of fairly local Blackbirds included a 2 year old bird. A Goldfinch was tracked within the group - ringed in the Meadows and trapped 15 days later in Clifton. Two Kestrel movements were from Shelford to Tollerton after 4 years and Ashford to Hassop in Derbs over 3 years. A Derbyshire Reed Bunting found its way to Bestwood, but overshadowing that was a Barton in Fabis bird that was caught 153km away in Swindon!
