Second year in Norway

GR+RL Norway 2017

Date: 28/05/2017
GR+RL has been seen again in Norway. Ann Karin Gaasland, who saw it last year, has reported that she has seen it again this year on 22 and 23 May, but in a different place: Tisnes, near Tromso. It was in a tiny pool in Grindoysun nature reserve which is at sea level. She says that Kvaloya, where she saw it last year is higher, is still covered in snow.

GR+RL was ringed on 31st August 2015 on The Wash, at Lawyer's Farm, Holbeach, Lincolnshire, as an adult bird just starting its moult. Ann Karin saw it last year on 21 May 2016. That was the first re-sighting of it since ringing. This year it was seen at the WWT reserve at Welney, Norfolk on 4 May on its migration north.
