Soil Hill & Ogden Res

SH 1045 hrs. 12 Fieldfare, 6 Lapwing, 1 Snipe & Meadow Pipit ditto Goldfinch, 2 Moorhen, few small gulls.
Ogden. 1 each Jay, Grey Heron & Sparrowhawk, Coal Tit.
Ringed BHG X2T6 discovered by BS on 25 November was photographed on the main overflow railings.

I am still waiting for the ringer to confirm details and therein lies a tale (tail?). The group using this code are supposedly based in Saxony SE Germany (formerly old E Germany). Yet one of them told me he thinks the bird originated from Hiddensee which is in N Germany on the Baltic Sea close to Poland. This is approx some 980 kilometres distant from Ogden.
