Geese on the move

A skein of 350 - 400 flew west over Darley Dale at around 12:15 today, presumably heading up to the Southport area from the Wash.
Pink-footed Geese
Whilst at Peak Village yesterday I noted that one of the Canada Geese was colour-ringed. Not sure where this bird originates from but I've contacted the ringing group I think is responsible so will hopefully get an update. See below;
