The colour-ringed RUFF at Wilstone 15-17 February 2012

Have just received details of the colour-ringed RUFF recorded on Wilstone during the icy period from 15-17 February 2012

It was initially ringed in The Netherlands at Oosterlittens, Skrins, on 3 May 2007. That autumn it was seen at Welney WWT (Norfolk) on 29 October 2007 before being seen back in The Netherlands at Stavoren, Noordermeerpolder, on 26 March 2008.

There were no more reports of it then until 2010 when it was seen at two different locations in the Weymouth area (Dorset) on 9-10 January
