Significant Goldcrest recovery

Of the 728 Goldcrest ringed so far by EDRG, Goldcrest CLJ133 ringed on the 22 October 2016 at Ripon Parks is only the second record of a recovery for the group. The first was back in 2008. CLJ133, a juvenile male, had travelled significantly further than the previous record being found in Hexham, Northumberland on the 12 May 2017, some 97km (60 miles) away. The question is whether the bird was on its way to breeding grounds in the Scottish Borders or travelling further afield to destinations in Scandinavia.
