Just had the details back about a goldfinch I caught in the garden in mid-January this year. Instead of being a local bird, this is quite a nice movement. The bird was ringed in Suffolk at a place called Iken Marsh near Aldeburgh in December 2010 making it a movement of 97km and 399 days since it was ringed.
Spent a bit of time preparing a new ringing site on the coast today. It is a mixture of dry reed and scrub so hopefully I should get a few reed and sedge warblers this summer and maybe a goodie amongst them.....finger crossed!
