Third godwit gets Irish colour rings.
On last Saturday 29th August Cork bird ringer Barry O'Mahony caught and colour ringed a Black-tailed Godwit at Lough Beg, here in Cork Harbour. This brings the grand total for godwits colour ringed in Ireland to three! We are far behind godwits colour ringed in other countries but hopefully we will ring some more in the not too distant future.
