Askam Twite Season off with a Whoosh!!!

Present KH,  RG, AM, JS
32 Twite caught with the first one processed being a Control  This bird had been caught 1 week earlier at Heysham Bird Observatory.If as most birds it had originated from NW Scotland it shows how mobile some birds are in winter.  3 others were re-traps with one being from 3 years earlier
Although the photograph below does not show it clearly this is an old slag bank. It sticks out into the Duddon Estuary.
