Travel to France

During last winter I ringed some Song Thrushes (Turdus philomelos) wintering in my local patch, l'Aiguamoll de la Bòbila. I can remember well one of them, ringed in 26th January, because of a malformation in its right leg.
This same bird was found dead in 23rd April 411 km far, close to Brantôme (France), by Emilie Segard.

Another Song Thrush ringed last winter.
After a Polish Reed Bunting (Emberiza schoeniclus) and a French Penduline Tit (Remiz pendulinus), it's the third foreign recovery related to my local patch!
