Roðaþernan við Jökulsárlón

Eins og sést á myndum er roðaþernan merkt og er nú komið í ljós hvar og hvenær hún var merkt, þetta er tekið af facebook síðu Birding Iceland.

We now know the origins of the Roseate Tern (Sterna dougallii – Roðaþerna) seen at Jökulsárlón (SE) recently. Steve Newton of Birdwatch Ireland has informed us that this is “63BM” which was ringed as a (well grown) chick on Rockabill off the east coast Ireland on 13 July 2012. Fascinating stuff.

Roðaþernan sem sást við Jökulsárlón nýlega var merkt sem ungi þann 13. júlí 2012 við austurströnd Írlands.
