Curlew / Whimbrel - Aberaeron, Wales

Hi All

Outsized long beak, pink lower mandible. Curlew?

Interestingly, ringed too.

Thanks

Gareth

Yes, Curlew. Are you able to read the ring from the original photos? If so please report it.

It might still be worth reporting the orange colour ring, as that may be enough to identify the origin if not the individual.

Check out the European colour ringing project website for details:

And that the other ring is white lettering on black, two alphanumeric code. I can almost read it in photo 1 but the resolution isn't good enough when cropped and blown up.
