Recent Recoveries

Details of a couple of recoveries have been received. X927295 Goldfinch is our first to the Isle of Man but follows on from two Goldfinches from there. Interestingly it appears to have been wintering on the Isle of Man when it was recovered having been ringed at Haigh the previous spring. Click on the balloons for ringing and recovery dates.

IA141745 Black-headed Gull was seen and photographed at Orrell Water Park 14 times between 27/10/12 to 26/01/13. Photographs of this bird have featured in previous posts. It was ringed as an adult in Germany near the border with Poland on 29th April 2012 and could have been at or close to its breeding area.
