Ringed ATLANTIC GREAT CORMORANTS wintering on Wilstone

Both the NORTH ATLANTIC CORMORANTS that were ringed in NE Scotland at Sands of Forvie (Aberdeenshire) and present at Tring last winter have returned.

'DXA' was first seen on 22 November 2008 but not close enough to read its ring until last weekend, when it was sat on the Drayton bank visible from the hide on Sunday 18th Jan. This bird is now in its second winter.

'CUA' first seen at Tring in December 2005 has also returned for its 4th winter, and last Saturday was on Tringford (David Bilcock)
