ad. Showing again in field by farm buildings. Blue colour ringed GB4A. Information received from the White Stork Project says that - GB4A is a male, originally from Poland, he came to the UK with a cohort of rehabilitated storks late 2018 who were established at our satellite site in East Sussex. He was released in April this year and has been seen around Sussex and Kent since then. He appears to have spent some time in the Midgham/West Berkshire area over the last few weeks.
