Chaffinch

Took a photo of this Chaffinch a few days ago. Only just noticed it has a ring on.
If I could have read the details on the ring, or if it had died and I had access to the ring, what should I have done with that data?

The BTO are always keen to hear about birds spotted with rings either alive or dead

Thanks. I've bookmarked the link.
I'll have to keep taking photos to see if I can get the full number. It would be interesting to find out the birds origin. :)

A m. chaff this morning, bright and early. Looked to be in splendid condition and was quite vocal.
Actually, I think I heard him yesterday but didn't realise what was calling.
