At least that's what it was called when it was ringed on 04-Sep-16 at Nidingens Fågelstation, a bird observatory on a small island in the Kattegat, about 5km off the west coast of Sweden.

By the time it had got to Poppit Sands, 17 days and about 1200km (in a straight line) later, it had changed its name to Dunlin.

We've just received details of this nice control to round off our 2016 campaign targeting the rather sparse waders in the Teifi Estuary, which saw us process 83 Dunlin, 13 Ringed Plover, 2 Knot, 2 Redshank and 1 Bar-tailed Godwit.
