Poultry in Motion II

Way back when in 2010 GR03863 was ringed as a juv at Cosmeston Lakes. We heard nothing more of it until it's ring was read in Greater Manchester. And that was the last we heard of GR03863.

Until recently when we heard via Kane Brides that GR03863's ring had been again read in the field in Greater Manchester. We could tell you more but to be honest Peter Aker who read the ring has done the job on his blog. There is even a map!
