Saddle ringed Tufted Duck at Lynsters Gravel Pit, update.

I have just received information from Alain Caizergues regarding the saddle ringed female Tufted Duck that I observed on the 15th October. Alain captured her on the 15/01/10 at Saint-Philbert-De-Grand-Lieu, south of Nantes. At the time of ringing she weighed 840g and was 2 years old.
Oddly enough I have observed colour ringed Cormorant's at Maple Lodge Nature Reserve in the past and they too have originated from this area in France, obviously an established migration route.
