Icelandic Black-tailed Godwit….

Colin Selway recorded a colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwit at Walmsley Sanctuary on 3rd September 2008.   He was able to trace it to an Icelandic ringing project and Sigga Beta provided the following history.  It is a male bird, which was first ringed in Iceland back in 2000.  As you can see, it has visited a number of different regions of the UK and Ireland.
