One of the wintering Black-headed Gulls at Rutland Water the last two years has a Polish colour-ring. It was back, presumably after breeding, yesterday. Surprising how quickly they can raise young and get back here.

Just finished the latest of my quarterly bulletins summarising the information gleaned from ring-reading in Leics and Rutland. This time featuring 255 ringed birds.

If anyone wants a copy just let me have an email address.

First Black-tailed Godwit ring-reading session of my autumn at Frampton Marsh RSPB, Lincs yesterday.

In five hours I only managed to read five ring combinations completely but thanks to Jenny Gill at UEA I already know that one was ringed in Iceland, one in France, and one in Portugal. The other two were both ringed on the Wash, one of them in 1996 making it at least 25 years old now.

Twenty other species of waders were on the same lagoon as the godwits, so a very enjoyable session.

We encounter dreadful problems with eliciting information on colour-ringed waders, especially Black-tailed Godwits. You obviously have better contacts!

Jenny Gill does a great job as a 'clearing house' for any reports of colour-ringed Blackwits. J.Gill(at)uea.ac.uk.
She has the details of Wash-ringed birds, which I see a lot of, and forwards everything else to the correct ringer/group. Just one of her contacts fails to respond, the rest are mostly pretty prompt.

Other waders, yes I often struggle too.

Thanks for that Steve. Will try Jenny (in a manner of speaking of course) later.
