A Colour Ringed Bird

Mid afternoon today, I located a red kite perched in an Ash tree in the vicinity of a nest at Rhulen, Radnorshire. This bird was wearing a black colour ring FF.

Following a conversation with Tony I established the bird was ringed as one of three chicks in a nest close to the Eppynt Ranges west of Erwood in 1998. This being fifteen kilometres from the location it was observed today.
The details of the ring have not been recorded since ringing.
