The Amazing Heysham Knot.

Copyright Howard Stockdale Clik the pik

Howard kindly sent me the collage he created of the Knot roosting over various March/ February tides at Heysham Heliport, when he achieved not just excellent photographs, but also reading an amazing 28 ringed birds.

As can be seen in the images, the birds have the flag of the country where they were ringed, together with the location and date, including one bird ringed at De Richel, Netherlands, 21 August 2012.....All round impressive stuff Howard.
