Lesser Whitethroat recovery

Yesterday (April 15th) we had a very interesting recovery, as one of the few Lesser Whitethroats ringed at Revtangen was controlled by ringers in Antalya, Turkey! The bird was ringed as a 3 cy+ male at Revtangen BO on May 1st 2020. Lesser Whitethroats are scarce at Revtangen, and we normally trap 10-20 individuals in a year.


This Lesser Whitethroat was ringed on April 29th 2020, two days before the bird now controlled in Turkey.
