Ringing recovery

Back on 28th October last year, I caught a Lesser Redpoll which already had a ring on it (not one of mine). You can read the original post (and see a photograph of the bird) here. The guided bird walk on that day, led by DB, were lucky enough to see this bird during a ringing demo and I can now tell you where it came from.

It was originally ringed on 13th October 2012 near Bestwood, Nottinghamshire. It moved a distance of 113km in a South, South East direction, within 15 days.
