The
interesting recaptures include: a female blackbird ringed in July 2011 as a
juvenile; a female great tit ringed in May 2014 as an adult; a female and a
male blackcap both ringed in 2018 and returning after migration as did a female chiffchaff.
Thanks to
Cedwyn Davies, Colin Baker, Keith Vaughton and Wendy Hall who all participated
in the CES.
