Lesser Redpoll enjoys TT Races!!

Lesser Redpoll S008520

Contrary to the normal pattern of movement seen by Lesser Redpoll ringed at Ripon Parks, Lesser Redpoll S008520, ringed at RP on the 23 October 2016 as a juvenile bird was controlled on the Calf of Man, Isle of Man by the Calf of Man Bo. on the 13 May 2018 hence travelling west some 215km in 19 months. We hope it enjoyed the races.  Look at our distribution map at the following link to see our usual dispersal patterns. Lesser Redpoll recoveries

Maybe it was following the return route of Lesser Redpoll Y518198 which was ringed
at the Copeland Bird Observatory, County Down, UK on the 21 September 2014 before being controlled at Ripon Parks. See the above link for more details of this bird.
