The beginning of his story...
Unable to nest on the Nene Washes due to flooding, Morgan's parents nested on nearby farmland. His egg, caked in mud, was carefully cleaned and incubated at WWT Welney. He hatched on 19 May 2018.
Back to the wild...
Morgan was released with the largest group of 2018, including his three siblings: Mo, Myrtle and Mopsy. The 21 birds were released on Lady Fen at WWT Welney on 19 June. Morgan is fitted with a geolocator so, in future, may help us map the godwits' migratory route.
And his story continues...
