19th January - Sightings

Fisher's Mill - Ruff, Redshank (J Allen, Bobby D)
Bassett South - Little Egret (J Allen)
Bassett North - Curlew, Redshank (J Allen)
Ladywalk - Mealy and 6 Lesser Redpoll, Brambling, 36 Reed Bunting on feeders. Little Egret, Woodcock, Water Rail, Tawny Owl, Lesser-Spotted Woodpecker, Shelduck and just 5 Goosander (S Cawthray)
Kingsbury - 2 Smew (redheads) Otter Pool (per Bobby D)

From various reports the colour ring combination on Ruff may be:

Left Leg - Red over yellow with metal ring?
Right Leg - Red + ?, with Yellow Flag above Tarsus

Can anyone confirm or deny. Look highly likely to be Dutch. See here and go to Ruff section. I will send off details if we can firm up exact combinations.
