Blackbird Peregrine Falcon eyrie, Breconshire 18.12.15 Andrew King LA36779. Blackbird ringed on Lundy Island, Bristol Channel in October 2007. Distance = 119 kms. Ring found (under NRW licence) by South Wales Peregrine Monitoring Group. A metal detector was used across the base of a Raven's nest used by a pair of Peregrine Falcon. The Blackbird was most likely taken as prey by the falcons. If you wish to learn of other wildbird ring recoveries (species and their history)found by this method at Peregrine nests in this county, then scroll back to pages 2/3 of this ringing page. Fascinating reading.

Canada Geese Llangorse Lake 28.06.15 Andrew King Birds ringed at Lake Windermere: Red colour-ring BAVK (metal 5272600) handled during the 2015 annual goose round-up at Llangorse. Also AAKN (5272613) handled. Update - both these birds still present on 20th July. Llangorse Ringing Group: annually in late-June, the geese are rendered flightless due to moult of primary wing feathers. Rounded-up by canoe, and safely handled by licensed ringers and helpers. 550 geese this year, approx. half previously ringed, and half given new rings. Ring histories: BAVK - ringed Lake Windermere 2/7/13, then ring read by birder (Mark Waldron)telescope at Llangorse 22/11/13, then back to moult Windermere 28/6.14, then back to moult at Llangorse 28/6/15. GOOSE AAKN ; 2/7/13, ringed at Windermere, handled at moult catch-up at Windermere 28/6/14, and then handled at Llangorse catch-up 28/6/15. These two birds have presumably been travelling together, but why do they change allegiance between moult sites??
