Pec? (k)not!

Spent an hour at Hauxley NR this afternoon avoiding packing/trying to see the reported pec sand. As with yesterday, luck was not with me, despite being told it was on view as I approached the hide! Plenty of dunlin (mixed states of moult), plus whimbrel, curlew, redshank, turnstone, greenshank and a colourful knot - which leads me nicely to the next bit!

Ian Fisher has kindly forwarded details of a colour ringed knot that I saw with Tim Cleeves at East Chevington a few weeks ago - here are the details:

colourcode - G5RYWW
date of catch - 09/09/07
location - Simonszand (NL)

Re-sighted at East Chevington on 13/07/09

See this for more details of the ringing project.
