I’ve had the first stray of the year in today. One of the downsides of an open loft. It’s a 3 year old Red Chequer Pied hen, with an ETS ring on. She’s in good condition. Makes you wonder why a bird of this age would go astray this early in the year. Whether it’s a stock bird that has got out, although unlikely with an ETS ring on, or someone started training already. I will try to find out where it has come from. It has a National ring on.

Found out that she comes from near Taunton. Contacted the owner and he said that she had been lost from France last year. She had been reported in Poole, Dorset last summer and was supposed to have been released. Going on the condition of her I would say that she had probably been kept in. Going to take her back to her owner at the weekend.

Nice one Andy, well done.
As you say I would think the fancier that originally reported her probably decided to hang on to her and has let her out after taking youngsters off her.
Good to know she will be going home.
