Saw these Turnstones and 7 others all marked with colour rings. Having checked for Turnstones on the European Colour Ring Birding site I find reference to ...Red Flag on right Tibia with combinations of other colours as being rung in Northumberland, Durham and North East England. However these both have the Red Flag on the left leg and unstated colour combinations. I cant find reference to this. Is it just a mistake by the ringers or are there other records of that combination?

Possible it's a recent scheme combination say used in 2018/19 and that cr-birding hasn't been updated yet. Especially if you've seen several cr birds together. Could be a family group or simply that they've recently been colour ringed and moved on. I've had this happen several times over the years.

I see that an Irish scheme uses red flags on left leg - http://cr-birding.org/node/1473 - although two c rings per leg plus the flag- might be worth contacting them in case they're now using three rings. Mistakes do happen but they're few and far between and I'd have thought less so with cr schemes which would stipulate the position of the flag for that scheme.

Hi Derick,
These will have been ringed in or near Scarborough. The contact for the sightings is Lucy Murgatroyd.
I don't have her email but she can be contacted via her Twitter account which is @LucyMurg

Cheers

I spotted a colour ringed Turnstone at Redcar on July last year. I never did find it on CR-Birding but I'm glad to see it is probably from the same group.

Certainly Looks the same group Rob. That's a little bit more we have learned.

The Quest to rolex replica One of the first visionaries to predict test-tube meat, you'll be surprised to learn, was Winston Churchill. Back in 1931, before he became Prime Minister, rolex replica wrote a magazine article about rolex replica progress in which he predicted that by 1981, "we shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium" [replica watches uk]. He was a little off on the time frame, obviously. It wasn't until 2001 that a bioengineer named Morris Benjaminson rolex replica and colleagues at New York's Touro College took chunks of fresh muscle tissue from a goldfish and immersed them in a vat of swiss replica watches liquid of fetal bovine serum. By doing that, the researchers found they could cause the still-living muscle cells to divide and produce more muscle cells; they were able to add about 14 percent worth of hublot replica flesh on the chunks. Benjaminson actually tried frying the fake fish in olive oil flavored with lemon, garlic and pepper and showed the result to colleagues, but nobody got up the nerve to actually try a bite [cartier replica].
