Twite at Home
Recent recovery forms from the B.T.O. have shown that the birds now known to breed in N.W. Scotland and winter in N.W. England are winter site faithful, but do wander within the N.West. Three birds ringed at Askam have subsequently been controlled twice at Heysham. Two birds ringed on Bank Marsh(Ribble Estuary) have been controlled twice at Askam. These are recent, but not the only controls and re-traps we had from the 368 Twite caught on the Duddon Estuary.
