Ringed curlew

last week on the 10th during the count of curlew on Bowling Green Marsh I had a ringed individual with the following combination 

Left leg white ring with BH on over yellow ring 

Right leg was green ring and a metal ring 

Just received news that it was ringed on 4/6/2015 as a chick in Glenbuchat Aberdeenshire and is the first sighting since leaving the area. Good to find out where it had come from and to find out about the work being done in Scotland.
