The beginning of her story...
Scott's egg was collected from the RSPB Nene Washes in April 2018, and hatched on 29 May.

Back to the wild...
Scott was released on 27 June at the Nene Washes - the first ever release of godwits at the Nene Washes. She was released with her two siblings, Strider and Stilts, and 12 others.

And her story continues...
May 2020. Scott is spotted back at her release site, the Nene Washes.
April 2021. Scott is seen briefly at WWT Welney.

How was she named?
Scott is named after Sir Peter Scott on the suggestion of @elaine_stokes on Twitter. Sir Peter Scott is often considered the father of modern conservation. Among many other things, he founded the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) created the IUCN Red List, was the founding chair of WWF and was instrumental in setting up the International Convention on Wetlands (the Ramsar Convention).
