Recent Recoveries

Goldcrest ringed 802km away at Revtangan, Klepp, Rogaland, Norway on 05/10/2015 controlled at Landguard 17/10/2015. Long-tailed Tit ringed 72km away at Santon Warren, Norfolk on 14/07/2015 controlled at Landguard 03/11/2015.

Blackcap ringed Landguard 17/09/2015 controlled 98km away at Welney, Norfolk three days later having lost 3 grammes in weight. Sparrowhawk ringed Landguard 23/09/2011 hit a glass window in Felixstowe 02/11/2015 (most of our Sparrowhawks are recovered dead after hitting glass windows so please don't clean your windows !). Grey Wagtail ringed Landguard 17/10/2015 hit glass & was then released when it recovered ten days later 242km away at Breda, Noord-brabant, The Netherlands. This is only the third Grey Wagtail ringed in the UK to have been found in Holland with two of them having been ringed here - not sure what this tells us but maybe a pattern is starting to emerge ?
