This colour-ringed cormorant orange CH4 (metal ring G1774) was ringed as a chick in the nest at Abberton Reservoir, Essex on the 26th April 2009, as part of a project coordinated by Jez Blackburn at the BTO. Since this time, there has been just one previous re-sighting; Brent Reservoir on the 13th February 2011.
