20170831_LittleEgret1Another email from the Ringing Project had the Re-sighting/Recapture History of the Little Egret attached. Jim, at North Notts RG wrote, “We have been studying the little egrets near Newark since 2013, to study their juvenile dispersal and their age at breeding & location. This is one of our quickest movements north.”
