Goose Ringing in Cheshire

Since April 2010 I have been ringing Geese mainly in South Cheshire. I have been using green colour rings using the combination of C00 onwards.

    Hi
    Just received report from Stephen Dunstan who I understand was passed on to you by Kane. Maybe you could register on the European cr site to avoid people assuming they are ‘just Kane et als from Windermere’ as regards any Lancs/S Cumbria sightings where they may be a bit of ‘ring reporting fatigue’? Best regards Pete Marsh (Lancs Bird Report ringing report editor)
