Recent recoveries

A Reed Warbler ringed as a young bird in Suffolk in August 2009 hit a window in Attenborough in July 2012. A Sedge Warbler ringed as a young bird at Holme Pierrrepont in July 2011 was controlled at Icklesham in August 2012. Two young Reed Warblers which were ringed at Holme Pierrepont during August 2012 were controlled a few weeks later, gaining weight at Icklesham, it seems there may be a migration highway direct from Nottingham! 

The Icklesham connection continues with a Lesser Redpoll ringed there in October 2011 later being retrapped at Bestwood in November 2012. Even more Leser Redpolls featured this time round with a young Lesser Redpoll ringed at Bestwood in October 2012 controlled fifteen days later in Bedfordshire.
An adult Lesser Redpoll also ringed in October 2012 at Bestwood was controlled in Surrey in January 2013. Finally, another in Bestwood November 2012 was controlled by Birklands Ringing Group in Warsop also in January 2013.
