Goldfinch Origin


I heard an almighty bang against my bedroom window early this morning and realized immediately that one small bird must have scored a direct hit.

True enough, when I peered out later, there was a juvenile goldfinch lying dead on the ground.

Curiously, it has coloured tags on each leg, viv. red and pink. I have photographed the details.

Can any readers advise or help on how to discover where this little bird was tagged?

I am trying to find out if there is any local ringer and am awaiting replies.

Doesn't really look like a scientific ring but more like a ring from a hobbyist.
