Ring Ouzel Update

Last month I was lucky to spot a Ring Ouzel that was perched in a tree at Goldcliff Lagoons. Today one of my Gwent Ornithological Society contacts was kind enough to get back to me and give me an update on some inquiries he had made via the two rings it had on its legs. He managed to get in contact with the people who rung it.

They reported that the Ouzel was rung as a chick in 2016  on Stanhope Moor in Durham. They passed on their thanks for spotting it.

Its thought that the bird may be migrating North via the West Country.

Really interesting news and it shows how ringing birds can be very useful for learning about bird behavior and migration patterns.
