The emails of these recoveries were received while in Costa Rica.
As always American banders working with us are impressed with the numbers and distance of recoveries within and outside of the UK.
Finally, an interesting recovery for us this week in Costa Rica. An adult male Dusky Nightjar ringed during Richard's visit in November 2014 was found by us, a fresh roadkill next to the Pan Am Highway close to our banding site nearly 3 years later.
Nicer but less interesting was the capture of a new Dusky Nightjar at dawn the following day.
