Siskin recovery

A Siskin ringed in the garden was the pick of the latest batch of recoveries received from the BTO. It was ringed as an adult female on 23/02/13 and was subsequently caught by a ringer in Keith, Moray, Scotland on 13th April; a movement of 447km in 49 days.

I ringed 102 Siskins between 2nd February and 30th March which is the most I have ringed in the garden. There is a chance that we will find out a few more have been recovered in due course as ringers have been catching Siskins in exceptional numbers across the country this spring.
