Twite

For the last couple of years several members of SNRG have been fortunate enough to assist Jamie Dunning in his study of Twite. He has been catching and colour-ringing them in the Pennines, near Manchester, and in Derbyshire near Buxton. He has had several sightings providing some important information on their movements, longevity and how they mix between populations. One of the most recent sightings has been in Nottinghamshire, just North of Misterton. This is great news as not only are there very few sightings of Twite in Notts, but this one was actually ringed by Duncan at the Derbyshire site in September this year! Thanks to Caroline Smith, the observer, for the photos.
