Recent Recoveries

An Egyptian Goose which was ringed at Attenborough in November 2009 was sighted by a ringer in the field at the same site in November 2013.

A Cormorant ringed as a chick at Attenborough in June 2013 was found dead at Foston, Derbyshire in January 2014.

A young Reed Warbler ringed at Holme Pierrepont in August 2013 was controlled 9 days later in Charente-Maritime, France having traveled 784km. Remarkably, a young Whitethroat ringed at Holme Pierrepont in August 2013 was also controlled at the same site in Charente-Maritime, France 24 days later.

One of the Tree Sparrows which I ringed in Keyworth in May 2013 was controlled at Wanlip, Leicestershire later in November 2013.

Another of my Lesser Redpolls from Langar ringed in March 2013 was controlled in Darnall, South Yorkshire in November 2013. Interestingly this bird was ringed on the same day as a Lesser Redpoll which has been controlled at Icklesham, also in November. It appears the birds have travelled in opposite directions.
