Got some information back on one of the colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwits that frequented Goldcliff a couple of weeks back. It was originally ringed in December 2008 640 km SSE of Goldcliff at Moëze-Oleron National Nature Reserve, Charente Maritime, France (for more information on the reserve and a chance to brush up on your Français click here).
Of course, in the intervening months it has probably flown up to Iceland and back. I wonder whether it popped in for tea with Jónsi Birgisson, Ólafur Arnalds, Jóhann Jóhannsson or any of those other clever musical bunnies,... I bet it did, islandica Black-tailed Godwits are famous for their good taste in Icelandic ambient post-rock classical ear-wormery.
