A colour-numeric ring was sighted on the right tarsus (JRW Yellow) and submitted for validation (metal ring M64850; SAFRING database). Recovery data confirmed that the respective bird was a juvenile male that had been ringed as a hatchling on 8 July 2015 in Kesalahti, Finland. The elapsed time between being ringed as a chick in Finland and recovery as a juvenile in South Africa was 131 days.
