Redwing migration

George Briggs provided details today of a Redwing he rang on 19th October 2013 on Beeley Moor which was found dead on 15th May this year in Kargopol, Arkhangelsk, Russia a distance of 2586Km. 
The Redwing breeds widely across Russia and most winter in Europe or the Middle East so some must cover over 6000Km in both spring and autumn.
