Recovery Updates

Jonny Cooper has just updated the maps and data for the ringed bird recoveries, adding in those registered during 2021 and I have just uploaded them into the blog.

Highlights include: the oldest recovered Goldcrest in the UK (unless another, older one has been found since) and the second longest movement of a Blue Tit within the UK (okay, that’s a 2022 record).

Lowlights: the recovery of one of the Buzzards ringed on Somerford Common in November 2019 being found shot dead in a country park near Dudley in the West Midlands.
