Colour ringed Curlew with yellow 6N was caught and ringed at Wood Lane NR near Ellesmere, Shropshire on 16th August 2023 and in recent weeks has been near Trimpley Reservoir.

The colour-ringing is part of a project aiming to study the breeding areas, winter destinations and survival rates of Curlews breeding and wintering in Shropshire/Mid Wales. In the last eight years over 500 Curlews have been individually colour-marked with re-sightings in Cornwall, Devon, Pembrokeshire, Cardiganshire, Shropshire, Denbighshire, Carnarfonshire, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and Lanarkshire as well as Counties Cork, Galway, Waterford, Wicklow and Wexford in the Republic of Ireland, Jersey, France, Spain, Norway, Sweden and Finland!
