Recent Recoveries

A first year female Reed Bunting ringed at Rushcliffe Country Park in Dec 2010 has been caught by friend of SNRG Garry Barker of Charnwood RG in Leicestershire in Nov 2013.

Then one of Ian's Lesser Redpolls from March 2013 in Langar was caught in Nov 2013 at Icklesham, 248km away on the south coast.

Finally, a Blackbird ringed in May 1988 in Clifton was recovered 2 years later in 1990 at the same site. Quite why this has taken so long to reach us is anyone's guess!
