Colour-ringed Sanderling

Whilst bimbling around the beach at Gibraltar Point, Lincolnshire yesterday (20th August) I snapped this distant moulting post-breeding adult Sanderling as it fed along the tideline. After cropping the image and magnifying it for use I saw that the bird was carrying a number of coloured leg rings. On the left leg we have green over blue over green and on the right leg it looks to be yellow over white. I'll send this info to The Wash Wader Ringing Group and the BTO and I'll update this page with any additional information on this bird as it becomes available.
