The bird had been ringed by Grampian Ringing Group and was the third record of one of their birds here.
Recently, Suzanne managed to photograph another bird which turned out to be part of the same study.

T96 was seen at Killough, Co. Down and we've heard back from Harry Scott at Grampian Ringing Group that it had been ringed as a chick in June 2015 at Strathdon.
It was one of a brood of three, one of the first broods of young birds GRG fitted with yellow darvics.
