  1. Excellent set of recoveries from Bure! 5 days to Belgium is nice. All I could manage was one of my Sedge Warblers nobbled by a French cat...

  2. yeah its really good seeing as we dont actually catch that many reed warblers, I think we caught about 30 last year and three of them were foreign-ringed (Germany, France and Spain). 10% foreign-ringed aint a bad stat!
