The beginning of his story...
Denver's egg was collected from the RSPB Nene Washes in April 2017, and was one of the first eggs to hatch at WWT Welney on 8 May 2017.

Back to the wild...
Denver was released on 12 June 2017 on Lady Fen at WWT Welney. Denver was released alongside 24 other young godwits including his brother Nelson and sister Remi.

And his story continues...
May to July 2018. Denver is spending the summer at and near the Ouse Washes.

Where is he spending the autumn and winter? Will he come back to the Fens in 2019?

How was he named?
Denver was named after the Denver Sluice, a complex of sluices, near Downham Market, which regulates water levels across much of the Fens.
