Reunited with an old friend

Been catching the last of the reedbuntings for the winter/spring. Among the last of the birds caught was this female. The history of the bird is as follows:- Trapped and ringed 06/02/03 5f

Retrapped 15/03/08 6f

Retrapped again 02/04/09 6f

Retrapped again 28/03/10 6f

This is what I enjoy so much about ringing, to know that some birds live for a considerable time and usually winter in the same area. I look forward to meeting up with her again next year.
