Our annual meeting 2019 included a presentation about Project Godwit, a head-starting programme in eastern England, which included local CEPA. One of the godwits hatched there in 2018, has been spotted in Spain and Senegal. The first sighting outside where it was hatched was Isla Mayor, Veta la Palma, Spain in May 2022, and in July 2023 it has been seen in Polo, Ross Bethio, Senegal.

The male bird is colour-ringed, BO-WL(E), and is also known by the name Estragon.
