Following on from the previous recoveries, we have had details of two birds that we have reported.
The first was a Cormorant, ringed as a young bird at Abberton Reservoir in Essex in 2007, which had its colour ring (Black on orange, CD3) read 7 years later at Attenborough in October.
The second was a Tree Sparrow which was caught at Brackenhurst in January this year, with a B ring on, meaning it was ringed as a youngster. It was ringed by Chris de Feu at the nest in Beckingham in June last year. This bird found the net shortly after Duncan and Jim were remarking how we very rarely get any control or even retrap Tree Sparrows!
