Is one of very few European land bird species to migrate outside of its breeding range for the winter. 

It leaves Europe in October.

Some cute work from a civil servant with an ornithological hinterland there.

I think I can place the bird. I did wonder why the "operation" took that name.

Because it is bloody, no one sensible wants one and not everyone survives?
