The French Connection Continues

While out in Senegal we managed to catch up with lots of migrants that didn't reside in reedbeds. Among these were several colour-ringed Spoonbills and an Avocet. Well the first of our sightings is back:

Spoonbill Oa/OYB (aka metal ring CA 70143) was ringed as nestling at Besné (Loire Atlantique, France) on 5/5/2010, France, by Loïc Marion.

This is not the first time that we've encountered one of Loïc's birds; a couple of years ago one of his colour-ringed Great White Egrets could be seen outside Facey's office for several weeks!
