Ringing Recovery

Whinchat ringed this spring13th May 2017 at Oostvaadersdijk, Ijsselmeerpolders, The Netherlands retrapped 273km away at Landguard four days later. This is only the fourth ever foreign ringed Whinchat to have been found in the UK and the first from Holland. Two previous British Whinchats ringed on autumn passage in the UK have been trapped in spring in The Netherlands suggesting that at least some British Whinchats travel through Holland on spring migration.
