Recent Recoveries

Another handful of recoveries just through include a young Tawny Owl that expired a month after being ringed as a chick 3km from the box and couple of local yearling Barn Owls, though one moved 40km. A Greenfinch ringed at RCP in 2006 as a 5 was found dead having got stuck in a house this year, making it a 6 year old bird. Lastly a Willow Warbler ringed as a 3 at HPP last August was picked up on a road in Argyll this July. It would seem likely that this wasn't too far from its natal area and we had ringed it on passage last year.
