Recoveries & Controls, June 2011

An Egyptian Goose ringed by the group at Attenborough in 2008 was found half eaten (probably fox) in March this year, but beating that was a Mute Swan ringed in Ruddington in 2003 and found dead at Attenborough recently.Whilst doing the boxes at Bunny this year several Tree Sparrows corpses were found looking as if they'd perished whilst roosting, presumably in the very cold weather. All had been ringed in either 2009 or 2010. An interesting control was caught by Mick in Hucknall in March - a Siskin ringed as a youngster in Thetford Forest in August 2009.
