Pembrokeshire Ringing Group are Chough-ed!
Splendid news that
a Chough that was colour ringed on the 20th May 2001 at Porthtaflod Pembrokeshire
is resighted on the 5th April 2017 approximately 247 km away by the
Calf of Man BO. A time lapse of 5799 days and if you don’t have a calculator to
hand, that is 15 years 10 months 16 days. We believe older Chough’s are around but this
movement is a bit special for Pembrokeshire. Pemb's Ringing Group.
