Near but not near enough

Recently we were informed of a Kingfisher recovery. The bird had travelled a magnificent 68km north into Nottinghamshire. This is the furthest any of our Kingfishers have moved so you can imagine my suprise when I read of a Kingfisher on the BTO Demog blog site that had been ringed in Germany, 12km from the Polish border, then flew into a window in Market Harborough just 15km short of our site at Stanford !!! Oh well, better luck next time!
