42N Ringed Plovers ringed at Snettisham in East Anglia have been recovered at numerous locations in Britain, Ireland and France, mostly outside the breeding season during the winter period. The two recoveries in Holland were of the same bird where it was known to be breeding. It was originally  ringed as a chick at Snettisham and obviously relocated.

The recovery at Rost Island , Norway on 24 June 2001 was a bird ringed on 10 March 1996 at Snettisham. This bird was on passage to Norway and is not part of the breeding population. It was back in the UK in January 2003 but by July was again back in Norway.

Most of these recoveries are the result of an extensive colour ringing project.
