Little Egret heads South!

Little Egret photo from BTO Website

Just a quick post tonight.. After checking my usual blog list to see what other ringers have been upto over the last few weeks and to see what they have been catching.. I came across this little article on the BTO's website..

I thought seeing as though this was a bird ringed in North wales, it was only right to give it a mention..

This Little Egret was ringed in Bangor, Gwynedd on Saturday 19th June 2010. A few months later the bird was amazingly seen alive in Tenerife on the 3rd and 25th of November.. What a fantastic movement!

  1. Nice blog you've got. That's why I love having a short break in Wales because I wanna observe those birds too.

  2. Hi Michelle,

    Many thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I love Wales also.. I have never yet been to Pembrokeshire but may be planning a trip there sometime this year for some birdwatching.
