Updating my records I came across a Bewick Swan with a purple neck collar that the late Rob Laverack saw flying north on 1/1/1997 over Carlton Marsh.
In our 1997 Annual Report I wrote that it was seen previously at Lound in Derbyshire and at Broomhill Flash and later the same day at Fairburn Ings. However, it would appear that I have no information on where it was actually ringed. Can anybody help please?
Pete Smith has sent this information.
