Kingfisher control

Received nice news from our ringing center that a Kingfisher I had ringed in October 2010 at my ringing site in Ashdod was controlled by Itay Shomshon at Ein Afek Reserve, near Haifa, on 30/3/11, distance of 122 km. This bird was probably moving south when had I ringed it, and Itay caught it during its' return migration north. Nice stuff!
