Iffy Chiffy from Norway

Just got the control details back from the above Chiffchaff wearing a Norwegian ring that I caught at Buckton on October 11th 2010. It was ringed 23 days before and had travelled some 1324km in SSW direction from Aglam, Namsos, Nord-Trondeleg - 100 miles N of Trondheim, Norway. Ok, great BUT after spending ages carefully looking at the age of the bird, it appears I got it wrong... I had it as an adult.

I did a similar thing last year, after much careful study of a Belgian ringing chiff I decided it was a 3, got ringing detail back and it was ringed in 2008... little buggers
