A Scilly stormie and a Pied Fly goes north to breed.

Two recoveries that arrived yesterday;-

Storm Petrel -  2661094,
We controlled at our new Mwnt (Cerdigion) site, during our first session there on 13th July 2012. This lovely control...originally ringed as an adult at Deep Point, Isles of Scilly  1st August 2011. Presumably the first Storm Petrel movement of a Ceredigion recovered /ringed Stormie ??

Pied Flycatcher - L927171
Ringed as pullus at the nest box  4th June 2011 in Pengelli NNR. This small colony undergoing a recent resurgence in the last few years. With 39 pulli ringed in the last 3 years, nice to get a recovery already.
Interestingly, controlled as a female at a nest box by North Lancs Ringing Group in Burton Wood, Brookhouse,  Lancs on 15th June 2012.
A  good proportion of our adults are ringed, we presume our own birds, perhaps not, as this bird chose to go 267km further north to presumably breed  in her 1st year ?
