At the end of July Three Black Tailed Godwits dropped onto the roadside flash at Blyth links one of which was colour ringed , the details are as follows:
Ringed in Sept 2009 as an adult male. Short history below.
Hazelwood Marshes NR, River Alde, Suffolk, E England
Orfordness, Suffolk, E England
Hagi, North Iceland
Blyth Links, Northumberland, NE England
As you can see the history of this bird is brief and has not been reported since 2010 , if you see a colour ringed bird why not try to record the details, sometimes it can be a challenge , bird in long grass , water, leg held up etc: but thats half the fun and the bonus is getting some information back on your sighting.
