Coots on the move!

I received a batch of colour ring sightings last week from Kenneth Richardson, who regularly sends in sightings of birds on the Leeds & Liverpool canal. On inputting these into IPMR, it was obvious that these were bringing to light some interesting local movements.

The blog has been a little quiet recently, this is due to me being busy at work at the moment & not finding the time to blog in the evenings. I have been out ringing & last week caught/ringed 76 new birds, recapped 15 and controlled one - a Chaffinch - L333984.
