This bird with a yellowish orange ring on its left tibia and yellow (or stained white) on right leg, metal on right tarsus was almost certainly ringed by Pete Potts at Farlington Marshes LNR, Portsmouth in November 1998, so it is at least a 4CY, and possibly older. The large majority of other Icelandic Black-tailed Godwits present were only just moulting out of summer plumage.
