The first bird, which Lowell saw was at East Strand in Portrush back in early September. It wasn't colour-ringed but he managed to read and report the number on the metal BTO ring.
He heard back that this bird had been ringed as a nestling on 12 June 2010 at North Esk reservoir in the Scottish Borders making it a movement of 209km.
