7th July 2018 from The Ringers

On the 7th July, a female Garden Warbler was re-trapped in the study area. The ringing recovery report from the BTO shows that the bird was first caught on 7 Aug 2015 as an adult at Brattles Orchard, near Brenchley in Kent. Although it is not a great distance between these two UK sites; Garden Warblers are trans-Saharan migrants. It has flown to Africa (Senegal / Kenya / Angola area) at least 4 times and has covered some remarkable mileage.
