The beginning of her story...
Juno was collected as an egg from the RSPB Nene Washes in April 2019.

Back to the wild...
Juno was released with her three siblings - Omaha, Utah and Sword - and 11 other headstarted birds at RSPB Nene Washes on 21 June 2019. Juno is fitted with a geolocator so, in future, may help us map the godwits' migratory route.

And her story continues...
February 2020. Juno is spotted near Seville in Spain.                                         October 2020. Juno is seen in Zambujal, near Sesimbra, Portugal.

How was she named?
Juno was named by Kate Thorogood on Facebook in honour of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. Juno or Juno Beach was one of the five designated beaches that were used during the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944 during the Second World War.
