Distribution Map for Lesser Redpolls controlled or ringed by EDRG up to April 2018

Below is a map of the direction of travel of the Lesser Redpolls ringed at Ripon Parks by EDRG (white icons). The yellow icons represent birds which have been controlled by EDRG and from where they came. This map suggests that, in most cases, birds ringed by the group travel in a S or SE direction after ringing. The two controlled birds from Scotland suggest a similar migratory direction. The two controlled birds from Northern Ireland travelled mainly E in direction.
