Southport to Salisbury.

Thanks to Shayne Ford for getting in touch with a sighting of a colour ringed Coot. Shayne photographed the below bird on the River Avon in Salisbury City Centre, Wiltshire - this morning.

Orange BTO / White Orange was ringed at Southport Marine Lake on 11/12/2010 as an adult bird and this is the first sighting of it since ringing - 299km.. This is now the 2nd furthest mover from the cr-ringing project, the other bird - also ringed at Southport, was sighted in Cornwall in December 2010 - clocking up 390km.

Many thanks go to Shayne for reporting this & for the above photo!

  1. I knew I should have gone into the city centre when I was in Salisbury over the weekend. Darn. Well done though.
