Siskin recovery

Got some recovery data back from the BTO today about the ringed male Siskin I photographed last Friday. Although I didn't manage to record the complete ring number (there was one digit is missing), the BTO found just three Siskins that have ring numbers that could be a match. Two of these are females, leaving just one male - ringed on 6 October 2012 at Easter Inch Moss in Lothian, Scotland. The BTO don't have all the data in their system yet and could be missing some birds, so I need to check again in April to be certain. Many thanks to Lee Barber from the BTO for searching the database.
