The beginning of her story...
Caramel's egg was artifically incubated at WWT Welney from 27 April 2018 until hatch day on 28 May.

Back to the wild...
One of the youngest birds of 2018, Caramel was part of group three along with her three siblings Cornelius, Chalky and Chopstick. This group was released at the Nene Washes on 27 June. Caramel is fitted with a geolocator so, in future, may help us map the godwits' migratory route.

And her story continues...
October 2018. Caramel is spotted in France.

Will she make it back to the UK to breed in 2019? Where are Cornelius, Chalky and Chopstick?

How was she named?
Caramel was suggested by @loopylja when we asked for name ideas on social media. The perfect word to describe the beautiful colour of godwit plumage in the summer!
