colour ringed sandwich tern

Last Sunday I was able to photograph (badly) a colour ringed juvenile sandwich tern at Llanon. Following a brief email exchange with the ringer here are the details: This is actually a really nice sighting: Yellow-UVZ: ringed (chick) DD92098; Inner Farne, Northumberland, on 20 June 2015. It has been seen before since fledging and on 20 September was at Findhorn on the Moray Firth, seen and photographed by Richard Somers Cocks. It has made good progress since then! Regards Chris
