A couple of weeks ago, when I went back to try and get a photo of the Dutch bird I saw at Connswater, I managed to find a Norwegian ringed bird at the same site.
The brilliant Norwegian colour-ringing website gave me an instant response which gave me the ringing information for J4TJ.
It was ringed by Carsten Lome at Oslo on 19 April 2013 and this is the first time it's been recorded since ringing.
I still haven't managed to ring any new birds in 2014, and I'm blaming the mild weather...it's too warm! Although, speaking to Kane Brides, the temperature doesn't seem to have much of an influence on their catching in north-west England.
