Always fascinating to read about foreign ringed birds or indeed those ringed here and found abroad. I hope they get the details quickly - I caught a German-ringed Blackbird here in North Devon about 5 years ago and I'm still waiting for the details which I find really strange as it was ringed at the Helgoland bird observatory.

Doesn't surprise me in the slightest. Was Polish after all.

C'mon we need at least one obligatory Polish immigrant joke for such an event.

If Helgoland are as efficient as Hiddensee, posting the ring number on their website will get you a reply within 48-hrs. That's how long it took the latter to send me details of a Sprawk corpse found by my neighbour here in the Midi. But I'm still waiting on the details of a Sempach-ringed Blue Tit I controlled at my feeders last January.
