Ringed and tagged Redshank

I'll not bore you with the entire reply that I received from  Norway but it appears the Redshank has been spotted and reported by a number of Devon birders over the last couple of years or so. The reply also had the email addresses of the reporters. I have hidden part of the email addresses to preserve their owners privacy.

I hope you Will see earlier reports about the Redshank.
