Ringing results


Details of recent ringing recoveries have been received as follows:-

D992237 was a ring placed on a young Reed Warbler at Squires Down in Dorset on 4th September 2015 and was re-trapped at Stortons Gravel Pits, Northampton on 17th and 31st July 2016, some 173km distance;

S324121 relates to a juvenile Garden Warbler ringed at Paper Court Marsh, Surrey on 6th July 2016 which was then re-trapped at Stortons GP on 6th August 2016, a surprising NNW movement of 108km;

Z475789 was a ring placed on a juvenile Cetti's Warbler at Stortons GP on 7th June 2015 and then the bird was re-trapped as a breeding female at Newbriggs Flash, Derbyshire this year, displacing 118km in a north north-westerly direction;

TT94502 refers to a Greenfinch ringed as a young male at Greens Norton on 29th September 2012 which was found dead at Pimlico, Brackley on 7th August this year. Four years is actually a good age for a Greenfinch in recent years.

Further news of the colour-ringed Common Tern at Pitsford Reservoir seen on 5th August this year was that it and a sibling were spotted in the Bay of Cadiz, Spain on 29th July 2015 (initially ringed as a nestling in London in 2014).
