Goldfinch

What better way to start the New Year and our 2017 blog than with news of this lovely little Goldfinch. It was first ringed in East Haven at our BioBlitz on 27 August 2016. Derek Robertson from the Tay Ringing Group has been in touch to let us know that it was located in Cambridgeshire on 22 October having travelled an amazing 481km in 56 days. Absolutely fascinating to know that such a tiny bird can travel so far in such a relatively short period of time. We look forward to seeing them back in East Haven when the weather gets a bit warmer.
