Curlew Llangorse Lake 23/03/2020 Mark Waldron Red / Black "3E" Curlew NW(3E), was ringed with BTO FJ23829 at Llanrhystud, Ceredigion as a 1st year on 19/11/2017 and hasn't been recorded since. It is now of breeding age and may be intending to breed locally? An interesting set of records from Llangorse is now accumulating, and the dates imply that the site maybe important as a pre-breeding feeding/roosting area for local birds. Hopefully, with the increased level of interest in curlew, presence on nearby breeding grounds will be confirmed at some point.
