Northward Bound

We received details recently from the BTO of a Goldfinch we controlled at Moss House Farm on Rawcliffe Moss.

Female Goldfinch - But Not the Bird

We trapped the bird on 17th April 2010 and it had been ringed at Kintbury Farm, Kintbury, Berkshire on 31st January 2010. It had travelled a distance of 292 km and had probably been wintering in the south of England and was on its way further north when we trapped it. Alternatively it might not have travelled much further and nested somewhere in the Rawcliffe Moss area.
