Ringing Recovery

It was a surprise to find that the adult female Dutch ringed Blackbird caught here last week on 23/11/15 was the same bird that was caught here on 15/10/2014. It had been originally ringed 153km away at Westkapelle, Walcheren, Zeeland, The Netherlands on 04/10/2014. It is not the norm to retrap migrant Blackbirds here on consecutive years albeit a month later on passage this year than last.
