Ringing - Oystercatcher

Oystercatcher - 29/03/2018 at Llangorse Lake

Ring description: Metal “H18263” - probably missing a letter at the start of the combination. (BTO confirm ring number as FH18263)

Roosting with mate. BTO have advised that this bird was ringed by Wash Wader RG as age at least 2 years in immature plumage, sex unknown on 11-Aug-2010 at Wainfleet Marsh, Lincolnshire, UK. This is the first report of it since it was ringed. This history confirms what has been reported in the "Breconshire Birds" annual reports. In the 2009 report it was noted that there were no "summering or confirmed breeding" reports. It would seem likely that this bird summered between Llangorse Lake and Scethrog in 2010 and then was reported as the bird "with a metal ring on right leg" in 2011 & 2012 before attracting a mate in 2013 but making an unsuccessful breeding attempt, and finally raising 1 chick in 2014, 1 in 2015, 2 possibly 3 in 2016 and a failed attempt in 2017.
