Remember this guy?

We blogged about him in last April. He was ringed as a juvenile on the 16th September, 2012 in the Montrose Basin in NE Scotland. Since that blog last April, he was seen again on Bull Island on the 2nd of May, 2013 before heading off to breed.

He is back in Dublin again and has been seen and photographed several times on Bull Island, with the most recent sighting being on the 23rd February.

Isn’t it fantastic how much we can learn from these colour-ringed birds? Check out this link to read about what godwit researchers are learning about how climate change is affecting the timing of migration.
