A very interesting Dunlin!

 I have just received the following information from Peter Olsson on the Swedish ringed Dunlin Jane and I caught on 16th April at Llanrhystud.

"Hi Tony Cross,
many many thanks for this very interesting report. Yes, the bird was ringed by our ringing group as a newly hatched chick on the 24th of May 2011 at Eskillstorps ängar in south westernmost Sweden. The bird was observed as a chick 2 days after the ringing. Since then the bird has not been reported, until you caught the bird. The breeding Baltic Dunlins are highly threatened, only some 20 pairs are left in the area and less than 400 pairs in the whole of the Baltic Sea area.
I would very much appreciate any further information you may have on the bird.
Kind regards,
Peter Olsson"
