Ringing recovery

Just had details of a Chaffinch I ringed at Velator on 15th December 2010.

It was retrapped at Falsterbo Bird Observatory Sweden on 11th October 2012, 666 days after ringing.

I think I commented a few weeks back that some of the Chaffinches I have been ringing recently were larger than usual, and could be continental birds. Perhaps this is some vindication?
