Colour-ringed Greenshank and Common Gull

Colour-ringed Greenshank and Common Gull….

This Greenshank was colour-ringed as a juvenile on the Ythan Estuary in North-eastern Scotland in August 2006.  It has been seen several times in the River Camel area since then and clearly winters here.  This photo was taken by Andy and Shirley Park on Dinham Flats (R. Camel) on 26th September. For the latest news on this Greenshank see HERE

Colin Selway reports that this Common Gull was ringed as a pullus on 20th June 2008 at Sprogo Island, Korsor, Denmark (the co-ordinates for those who have Google Earth are 06 55.20N-010.58E).  Colin photographed it at the Walmsley Sanctuary on 2nd October.
