Siskin Control

Back in February, I was out ringing with Sorby Breck Ringing Group , at one of our regular sites in Wingerworth, Chesterfield. We had a very busy session with over 100 birds ringed (see details here), including a "control" Siskin, i.e. a bird ringed elsewhere.

Last week we heard back from the BTO, stating that this bird had originally been ringed at a site  in Argyll and Bute, Scotland, on the 24th July 2015. It had then travelled a minimum of 395km in 205 days, before being caught by us in Derbyshire. A great record!
