Shelduck KC; from Seaton to Seaton

Shelduck KC was ringed as a second year (aged 5) female on 29/1/12 at Seaton Marshes (click HERE for that ringing session's blog post). When it was ringed, little did we know it would give us one of our best Shelduck recoveries to date.

On 18/6/12, Toby Collett the Assistant Warden at RSPB Saltholme, Cleveland, reported Shelduck KC on the Tees Marshes near Seaton Carew. That's a distance between ringing and re-sighting of approx 450km. Zoom out the map below to see a line drawn between the two sites.

Many thanks to Toby for taking the time to contact the group with this excellent re-sighting.
