26th October 2019 - Sparrowhawk

A juvenile male Sparrowhawk was ringed by a Hilbre member in his garden in West Kirby on 1st March 2013 and retrapped on Hilbre on 13th April.2013. See Hilbre blog for that date. This bird hasn’t been encountered since but on 25th October this year it was amazingly retrapped by another Hilbre member ringing in her garden in Hoylake. This most unusual series of records makes this bird at least 7 years old.
