Sand martin flies from England to Senegal


This video is called Sand Martin Nest Building.

According to a Twitter message by the British Trust for Ornithology, David Norman from England ringed a sand martin in Cheshire. Mr Norman recaught the same bird 8 months later in Senegal in West Africa.

So, that bird had not been caught by the Cheshire Cat 🙂 I hope all will go well with this sand martin‘s further migrations.
