Ringed Sanderlings

Following recent mention of ringed/flagged Sanderlings, on Friday 22/7 Lee Collins sent this interesting note on observations at Dawlish Warren...

Over last two summers 2009-10 have recorded 6 ringed recoveries, June 09 (Mauritania), July 2009 (Ghana), May 2010 Mauritania, June 2010 Greenland & July 2010 two (both from Iceland).
So was delighted to find two more today, have email address of Jereon from Holland a coordinator, who I'm advised is in Greenland right now & won't be able to reply to my email until late Aug.
But certainly nice to find these & get such fascinating details back, these migration is huge.
Got a few record shots today incl one with both in shot.
