Ringing - Oystercatcher

Oystercatcher - 05/03/2023 at Crannog, Llangorse Lake

Ring description: Metal, "FH18263".

FH18263 was on the Acorn jetty 05.03.23 with 3 unringed birds. This bird was ringed by Wash Wader Ringing Group as age at least 2 years in immature plumage, sex unknown on 11.08.10 at Wainfleet Marsh, Lincolnshire. The ring was also read at Llangorse Lake 29.03.18 which was the first report since it was ringed, and part read there 02.03.22. 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, 1 fledged young 2014, 1 in 2015, 2 possibly 3 in 2016, a failed attempt in 2017, 1 fledged from 3 chicks in 2018, failed attempts in 2019 & 2020, 1 fledged young 2021 and 2 in 2022.
