A request from Jon Avon at Stover Country Park....

There is a ringed coot (Left leg) at the main feeding area. there are only 7 on the lake. This ringed coot comes out of the water to feed.

It is not a British ring as far as I can identify -  the ring number is 340827 but the address of the country and ringing scheme is difficult to read. If any keen birders with good optics or cameras could get this  - it will provide a very useful coot record for Devon! There's the challenge!

Any help would be welcome.
