The beginning of his story...
Manea's egg was collected from the RSPB Nene Washes in April 2017, and hatched at WWT Welney on 11 May 2017.

Back to the wild...
Manea was released on 12 June 2017 alongside 24 other young godwits, including his siblings Delph and Lady.

And his story continues...
July 2017. He is seen at RSPB Old Hall Marshes, with sister Lady.
March 2018. He is spotted near Montpellier in France.
May to July 2018. He is spending the summer on the Ouse Washes.

Where is he spending the autumn and winter? Will he return and breed in 2019?

How was he named?
Manea (pronounced "may-nee") was named after the village Manea, the closest village to the RSPB Pilot Project site, a wet grassland site created adjacent to the Ouse Washes.
