We had a very tired looking Mealey arrive yesterday, it was rubbered over its life ring and had a chip ring on so I assumed it was an old bird lost from an International. It came in just before dark and was extremely hungry, to my surprise on checking its ring number I discovered it was a French youngster. It has got a wing stamp on so I will try contacting its owner and just hope he or she speaks English as I certainly don't speak French πŸ˜† πŸ˜†
Out of interest does anyone know if the French federations have any race points over in the UK or has this little bird just been dragged over by birds heading this way !!!

I expect it came across with birds from this country. I don’t think they would race from over here.

I would say dragged over mate, if you look on the RPRA site there is details on there for reporting French strays
