Lancashire hotspot !

Just had an email from Mark Breaks in Lancashire who was wondering if by any chance a ringed Common Redpoll (top pic) that arrived in his garden at Newton in Bowland, Clitheroe yesterday might be one of mine. Mark managed to read the ring in the field and a quick check revealed it was the above 1st winter bird caught here on March 12th ! First recovery of a bird ringed here this winter, 250km NW! Thanks Mark for the email and pic !
