  1. Danny, has Kane been in touch with you yet regards the colour ringed Coot in this post ? He sent me the details, after i told him about the bird in question.

  2. No,I did notice the numbers on the Coots leg but I could not read them.

  3. Danny, i`m not wanting to tread on Kane`s toes, but here`s the date & place it was ringed : 19/12/11 Hill Top Walkden, Greater Manchester.
