Goldcrest visits the seaside



Goldcrest 4Y5223, ringed as a juvenile male on 4 November 2018 at RHS Gardens Harlow Carr, Harrogate was controlled at Gibraltar Point BO, Skegness, Lincolnshire on 10 October 2019 having travelled 161km in a SE direction. However, it is possible that the bird found its way to mainland Europe to breed before returning to the UK on its winter holiday. It will be interesting to see whether or not this bird is picked up again at the original ringing site.
