On 3rd October we had our first sighting of one of the colour ringed Grey Herons, AC1 from Netherhall 4 months and 17 days after ringing. It was on the scrape at Rye Meads and the ring was very obvious which is good to see.

Great picture of ON(V) GW(6) at Rye Meads in July 2018 from Janet Martin. Originally ringed in 2013 this bird is seen regularly at Rye Meads but has not been seen anywhere else.


We have had news that Brent Goose Green AX has reached Germany and was present between 17th and 27th April at Langenwerder in Germany. This bird was last seen at Blue House Farm in February so we are delighted to see it is on the way to the breeding grounds and good to get a length of time for stop over in Germany.
