Jim Graham alerted me to the Common Terns that are now regularly feeding at Cropston Reservoir.
The terns rest on the railings and this allows the colour rings to be read.
It was great to hear that Jim had seen two of the terns that we colour ringed in 2014. He reported seeing U01, amazingly the first Comte that we colour ringed at WCP on 11/06/2014, and U36 rung on the 23/06/2014.
Today I managed to record another returning adult, U23
and also three of this years juveniles, U73, U74 and U80.
There was also this adult, with 2 plain yellow rings on the left leg. I am awaiting information on what scheme this bird belongs to.
