More on Glossy Ibis 3T7

Received today from Trevor Warrick...

...I now have a somewhat more interesting update on Glossy Ibis 3T7 which I received earlier today from Peter Moore, a local birder. Here's an excerpt from his e-mail.

"I e-mailed details of the ring code from the Wareham Glossy Ibis (3T7 as Trevor says) to a Spanish ringing scheme yesterday and heard back today from the DoƱana Biological Reserve. If I have understood what they sent me correctly (my Spanish is worse than their English), it was ringed there in May 2004 as a 1st year bird and has been reported to them five times since - the other four being at various Spanish sites, mostly near Seville."
