Recent Recoveries

Two Attenborough-born Common Terns have been resighted by the same observer at Cropston Reservoir in Leicestershire. The first was seen on 17 July and had originally been ringed in June 2001. The second was seen a few weeks later on 4 August, having originally been ringed in July 2013. This site is one of the first large waterbodies directly south of ANR so would be the ideal first stop on the birds' journey south to Africa.

A Cormorant ringed at Attenborough this April, has been resighted at Ogston reservoir on the 14 August.

Another Mute Swan has been controlled by Sorby Breck ringing group at one of their sites near Ilkeston. This one had been ringed in Cossall in 2010, and was recaptured in June this year.

A Tawny Owl ringed as an adult in Owthrope in April 2014 has was found dead on the roads in nearby Cotgrave on the 1 August.

A Greenfinch caught at the farmland feeding site at Sutton Bonington in December last year was caught by a cat nearby in the village on the 4 July.

A Lesser Redpoll, ringed at Bestwood in October last year has been controlled by ringers near Fleetwood, Lancashire, in May this year.
