Ringed knot bits

knotIn January, we went to Snettisham in Norfolk, where we acquired a lot of interesting items to my collection, including a ringed knot.  A knot is a small, dumpy wading bird that comes to the east coast in its millions in winter, but I think we were a bit too late to see the gigantic flocks.  The ring number of this knot was SR19614 and we managed to save the wings, the feet and the skull. We sent the details for this knot to the BTO(British Trust for Ornithology) The bird was ringed my the Wash Wader Ringing Group aged at least two years, sex unknown on 11th February 2012 at Snettisham.  So  it could have lived about six years.
