Where's this Spoonbill from?
Just got back from having a peak at a pair of Spoonbills which turned up lunchtime at Radipole. We went straight up to the hide where they flew off as soon as we arrived. I was told that one was ringed which isn't that unusual with Spoonbills. This bird had a yellow ring on the left leg with FJ9 inscribed in it. I can't track it down from http://www.cr-birding.be/ which is usually really helpful so any suggestions would be very useful!
Its alway quite strange photographing things at Radipole often you end up with a load of houses in the back ground which is what happened when trying to get some flight shots of the spoonies up at the North hide on Radipole.
