Exe Estuary Avocet - ringed over 19 years ago Snettisham

I went on the RSPB Avocet Cruise yesterday and was really pleased to see good numbers of waders with a good selection of species.

Amongst them was this ringed Avocet and I emailed John Middleton, project coordinator last night. I was thrilled to get a very quick response and to hear this bird was ringed in Snettisham in June 1998  > 19 years ago and this is the first record of it being seen on the Exe Estuary.
