Ringing:

Ringing control: A Garden Warbler ringed as a first-year bird on 09 Sep 2009 (ring no. X883597) at Snettisham, on the Norfolk coast of The Wash, was controlled in Millcombe on 18 Sep 2009 (9 days; 397 km; WSW 242°). This is only the second Garden Warbler ringing movement involving Lundy; the first, in Sep 1981, showed a remarkably similar trajectory from Gibraltar Point Bird Observatory, on the Lincolnshire shore of The Wash.
