On the 11th August Russ Sherriff saw and photographed a juvenile Wheatear on the reserve.
It was ringed with a metal BTO ring (AFL2953) & a red colour (CRI) one too which proves it was caught Calf of Man Bird Observatory just 16 days earlier on the 26th July. That's 443km in 16 days! A brief stop on the way south to Africa and it is just a few weeks old!
