Colour Ringed BTG

Another positive result for a colour ringed Black-tailed Godwit sighting report. I e-mailed the information about WG-OB  to Raymond Duncan of the NE Scotland Black-tailed Godwit Project and I received a superb reply today.

Black-tailed Godwit RL:O//Bm-LL:WG was first ringed as a juvenile on the 21st September 2013 at Montrose Basin, NE Scotland, after a further sighting in that area the bird turned up at Breech Pool. It was still in residence when we visited the North Wall on Wednesday, happy with the newly exposed mud.

If you come across a colour ringed Godwit then please submit a sighting report. This document on the Colour Ringing Scheme   gives information on all the Black-tailed Godwit ringing programmes
