Finally got the details back of a Blackbird corpse I found when out on the bike ,the remains shown I had nothing to put it in so it went into the bottle carrier till I got home so I could recover the ring , presume it was trapped on Autumn migration in it's 1st year and returned North over the years, head missing and well picked over presume Sparrowhawk kill . It was lying in the gutter but he ring caught my eye still get a thrill from finding a ringed bird !!!
