Jonathan Lethbridge managed to get in contact with the 'ringers' who accessorised this Tufted Duck... and believe it or not, it was 'rung' in Saint Philbert De Grande Lieu, France on the 1st February 2008. It remained at that location throughout 2008, and was last sighted there on February 21st 2008. A year and a few days later on the 2nd March 2009 it was photographed by JL at Wanstead Park! Thanks JL and Alain Caizergues for this information.
