Goldfinch recovery

I've never done any ringing in my garden. Since we've lived here I've just not had the time. And despite having a conservatory, we rarely find bird casualties in the garden. Perhaps the local moggies get to them before we do. So when my two year old daughter pointed out a dead Goldfinch in a corner and I picked it up to find it had a ring on, I assumed that my better half was part of an elaborate wind up. But it would seem that this is not the case and against all the odds, I have a intriguing recovery. Anyone claim X683523? I could be wrong, but I don't think it's an SNRG ring...
