this bewick swan is RIDDLER, an adult male(yellow ring, right leg, YXU)
and the bird in this photo is TEAPOT(also male)
teapot is the same age as me at 14!!!!!!!!!!!
and riddler is a good old 19 year old( like my friend tim)
riddler, being the oldest is the most traveled with records from estonia, the netherlands, germany, denmark, and of cause the UK,
teapot, is less traveled with all but 1 of 27 records being in the uk( welney wwt ,norfolk or at slimbridge gloucs......)
bit amazing isnt it, how much you learn from a few rings or in this case, bill paterns, i know i will submit any more rings i see in the future, and you should too, its great
