Brambling (Part 2) Todmorden

Further to my post a couple of weeks ago about the brambling flying into a window near my son's house in Cornholme. He's received details of the ring etc. from BTO Ringing Team, as follows: The bird (male brambling) was ringed by Merseyside RG as 2nd year on 12th February 2013 at Woolston Eyes, Warrington. Map reference given. It was found on 11th April, stunned after flying into a window. Ring number X573846. It was found 788 days after being ringed, 47 kms from the ringing site, direction NE. After a couple of false starts as the bird came round, it eventually flew off into a tree. This was a great response from the BTO and makes very interesting reading. If the Ringing Recovery Report is needed by anyone please let me have an email address and I'll forward it. Sandra
