Ring Ouzel tops the bill

Heysham Obs
A morning off checking moth traps and Kevin Kelly fortunately did a bit of coverage and unearthed a Ring Ouzel on Middleton.  Thanks Kevin.  Couple of nice ringing recoveries

Ringed : Embley Wood, Hampshire  3F   25/10/14
Caught:  Heysham NR  16/9/15   354km (NNW/SSE)

Actually aged it correctly - presumably on its way back south!

Ringed: Runcorn, Halton Cheshire 30/8/15
Caught:  Heysham NR  13/9/15     78km N

Reverse migration!!
