Frodsham Avocet 26.04.2008.

This is when it works well. Stephen Menzie reported this to me on 26th April, having seen the bird at Frodsham Marsh that date. A visit to the colour-ringing website (http://www.cr-birding.be/) indicated that the bird may be of French origin; with the site giving the email contact of the organiser.
Stephen's email was answered overnight on the 28/29th with a full history of the bird.

So, colour-ring combination: RWX/OY
Ringed 06.06.2006 Lasne, Saint-Armel, France
Reported 17.12.2006 Colne Point, Essex
Reported 20.03.2007 Colne Estuary, Essex
Reported 06.06.2007 Saline de l'entree de Pen Aval, Sene, France
Reported 26.04.2008 Frodsham Marsh, Cheshire

A good return on a single reported observation.
