This is a request, please, to start looking out for birds now, and to let me know immediately you see one, whether ringed or not, at:

Our highest priority target, which we need to catch, are the geolocator-tagged birds with red metal rings. We need to download the tag data to see where the birds have been. Second in importance are our un-tagged controls, with blue metal rings. There will also be birds around which we have ringed as nestlings; these will just have an uncoloured silver metal ring.

Wednesday, 16 June

Fen Drayton Lakes - male BLUE-WINGED TEAL showed well but briefly at 11:45h (Tony Lowe). Still present late evening, with a metal ring of unknown type on its right leg (Steve Cooper). Please keep to the riverbank footpath as the grasslands in that area are home to breeding waders, many of which have chicks hiding in the long grass.
