I'm still waiting to hear back confirmation on an Icelandic colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit and another of Ewan's colour-ringed Sandwich Terns from NE Scotland (he's off on the other side of the world at the minute!).
As well as these, I also recorded one of our colour-ringed Black-headed Gulls and Gareth visited today, getting yet another bird.
The bird I saw was 2AFF, which had originally been ringed on Mew Island, Copeland Islands and has been recorded once before, also at Whitehouse (see here).
Gareth's bird was a "first". 2ALP had been ringed on Blue Circle Island in 2013 (see here) and this is the first re-sighting of it since ringing. Wonder were it has been since, but I'm guessing it has traveled further than the 20km between Larne Lough and Whitehouse Lagoon!
