Herman Bouman invited me over to his local patch for some ring reading last week, which resulted in 5 rings in just under 2 hours.

Highlight was a first-calendar year Caspian, unfortunately we were not able to read the ring:

Among the other rings were two Dutch LBB's with color rings:

Green PJ2, ringed at the Europoort near Rotterdam:

...and Green Y.AXP from the Forteiland colony at IJmuiden (where I saw it a few weeks earlier):

Note P1 in the left wing, it almost looks as if its half-grown?
