Lesser Redpoll ring

Hi all

Barry has posted on the CBWG blog a bird with a ring. The ring is partly readable. Can any info be gleaned from this?  LINK to post

I guess its a BTO ring - looks like the wording suggests 'British Museum London' which I think is where they are asked to report to. Possibly ends ...46 - not a lot to go on and not sure its a 4.
With rings this small it's unlikely even with digi shots to get the complete number. A 'bird in the hand' comes to mind.
My suggestion would be to email the BTO direct with the photo and see if they can throw any light on it!
Nice one.

The BTO web site gives a form to fill in if you go to 'ringing scheme' OR Email direct with photo to - recoveries@BTO.org
