Admittedly at North Wootton in Norfolk, but the female Chaffinch above was first ringed by an old friend AJH over 20 km away as a 5F in 2005/06. This is the second time she has fallen into my nets, the last time in June 2007. There were some splendid long-winged males around, too.

Suddenly, Siskins started appearing this week, about 3 weeks later than last year, which was a bit of an invasion year. Over 4,300 Siskins were ringed in Norfolk in 2008! [180 in this garden]. The photo is of an adult male (6M).
