Colour-ringed Argentatus

Some of the ringing schemes and the instant nature of how quickly you can access the data have come on leaps and bounds in the last few years.
After a short cold sea-watch this morning I nipped up to Druridge Bay CP to see if the reported Black-throated Diver from yesterday afternoon had lingered. It appears that it hasn't.
I did manage to find a colour-ringed argentatus though, J2690, the individual in the image taken when it was ringed at the nest on 18/05/10.

It is a male now in it's 5th calendar year and bred last year on the island of HORNØYA, Vardø, Finnmark, Norway in the Barents Sea; a movement of 2309km to get here.
