Cheshire to Yorkshire via Derbyshire?
The week got off to a good start with a colour ringed Coot sighting, sent to us by Steven Denny. The bird - White BTO Pink Yellow was ringed at Redesmere Lake, Cheshire on 08/11/2009 and re-sighted at Trentabank Reservoir, Derbyshire in April 2010, before being sighted by Steven at Wintersett Reservoir in West Yorkshire on 30/09/2010 (65km)
Now onto this weeks ringing! With our diaries clear for the week ahead, Me & Ciaran have decided to do as much ringing as possible - weather permitting! So we kicked off on Monday morning at the Shakerley feeding station, resulting in a catch of 30 birds - 24 new & 6 recaps.
