Transfer to Sheffield Wednesday

For me one of the big disappointments of our Dipper project was that Stuart Sharp had failed to secure funding to expand his Dipper project on the other side of the 'hill' in the Peak District, but at least he has a PhD student carrying on his pilot in NW Sheffield. However to Stuart's obvious delight the female controlled at nest under a bridge in Hillsborough was RX54621 ringed as a pullus in 2008 at Diggle east of Oldham having travelled at least 37 miles. As far as I know Oldham Athletic and Sheffield Wednesday are the only two football clubs to have an owl on their crests; perhaps they should change them to Dippers.
How interesting it would be to know the birds dispersal route over the hill.
