A report has just been received of a colour ring Sandwich Tern seen at Tanji ringed from the colony at the Blakeney National Trust reserve, Norfolk.

This project in Norfolk started in 2013 with 52 chicks ringed, and 105 in 2014, and aims to provide information on their migration and wintering grounds, and hopefully sightings in the Gambia. This work compliments the research done at Kartong where 10 Sandwich Terns have been caught and colour ringed.
