CX4 - the story continues!

'Yellow CX4' is a Cormorant that is starting to acquire legendary status. Ringed as a chick at Attenborough Nature Reserve in 2016, it has been re-sighted at least a dozen times. But even more interesting is the clear pattern of movement that it undertakes. It seems to breed in the Merseyside area and spend the latter part of the winter on the Suffolk coast. This movement has been repeated over several years but to date we have no sightings in the post-breeding ad early winter periods. Many thanks to Alex Jones for the latest sighting, shown here.
