SCAN CAN 2- Norwegian sanderling

SCAN ringing group were out again this weekend and had a very successful catch this morning at Kinmel Bay.  Yesterday only 6 Ring Plover were caught at Rhos but this morning the group caught:

36 ringed plover, inc British control
168 sanderling, inc 15 retraps from 2 years ago, and adult bird with Norwegian ring (49juvs)
2 dunlin.

Interestingly a Norwegian ringed Turnstone was caught with the group's last catch there 2 years ago.

  1. That reminds me of a famous quote by a ringer at Spurn in the late 80's who came into the obs and said "We've just caught a Dutch Dunlin from Denmark"!
