Look who's back...

Back in July, we received word of one of "our" birds in Oslo, Norway (see here).

2ALP had been ringed as a chick on Blue Circle Island in Larne Lough in 2013 and hadn't been seen until last winter, when it spent the early part of the winter at Whitehouse Lagoon, Belfast Lough.

At the end of September, Suzanne photographed 2ALP back at Whitehouse. it's fantastic to confirm the bird back in NI.

Also seen at Whitehouse on the same day was T56W, a Polish-ringed bird which has overwintered at this site for at least the past two years (see here and here).
