Stormie goes to Scotland

In the latest batch of recoveries from the BTO we had news of a Storm Petrel
 ringed in July 2011 at Strumble head
that was retrapped on Sanda Island, Kintyre, Argyll and Bute in August 2012 by Clyde Ringing Group. 370 days later and 361km away.
Also a young Blackbird ringed on the Teifi Marshes nature reserve last October, survived the winter only to be killed by a cat 18km away in Carmarthenshire 2 weeks ago.
Our Sedge Warblers are often caught on their migration route through Western France and we had a recovery from a new location, Le Tertre Rouge in Loire -Atlantique of a bird we ringed in May 2011 which was caught in August 2012.
