Colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit

Post by MisterT » 10 Jul 2016, 14:06

Perseverence always pays off in the end as with this colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit originally seen back in May 2015 at Loch an t-Saile. Having made contact with Pete Potts earlier this year after finding 2 of his birds from Farlington Marshes, it turns out that this Godwit was also ringed there back in 2011!

The birds history (below) shows that it has been seen several times since then.
