Apart from a date of 4th Feb 2014 [M. Hogan with photo], does anyone have any further dates to add for this bird.

Did anyone take a photo of the two that were reported there between 4th & 8th Feb.
Any information would be gratefully appreciated. Many thanks GRC

Looking at the original of this photo, I think I can make out '29' on the leg ring code, so maybe this will help in finding out where it came from?
