Report by Jim Wilson: On the 24th August Mark Carmody photographed White Orange - White Redflag just 7km from Scoil Iosaef Naofa at Slatty Bridge. He immediately contacted me with the details which I then sent to Iceland. It turns out that it was colour ringed on the 13th July 2007 at Modruvellir, NW of Akrureyri (road 82), Northern Iceland. It was also seen in Donegal on the 2nd November 2007 at Inch Island Lake, Speenoge, Co. Donegal, N Ireland.
