River Coly ringed Dipper info!

Frequent readers will have seen my multiple posts from this year about Dippers. If not then here's some posts that they featured in:

There were other posts but that'll do!
I made it a mission to get enough shots of the ring to work out what was on it. I eventually succeeded by the end of August. I've now heard back from the BTO and the bird was ringed as a nestling on May 9th 2011, at Wilmington Trout Farm. So it turns out it's only come about 8km to here, but it's still interesting to know where it came from, and nice to get a response after a LOT of effort went into trying to get close enough photos of the ring.
