I see it's been ringed, so someone must be keeping an eye on it - I'd love to know what information they (whoever 'they' are! I had a Great Tit with a ring the other day, no idea where/when/who did it!!) can gain from such a ring.

Lovely shot Mick.He has done very well to last for so long being so obviously and brightly coloured. Thought a predator might have had him by now.
