First reed bunting I've ringed to be spotted elsewhere!

Yay! Information on the first control of a bird I ringed which has then been found somewhere else has just come in!

A reed bunting I ringed on 17th October 2009 turned up at Corsham Lake in Wiltshire, 
37 km away on the 19th November 2010, 398 days later!! Here's a photo of possibly the same bird (I ringed half a dozen reed buntings that day - passing through on migration). 

One was also a control (ie already ringed) from further up the road in the Gordano Valley. Not bad for one morning's ringing of 15 various birds in total!!
