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.
