I have reported this to the BTO who have forwarded it to the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust.

Ringer's Report

I have received a report on this bird from the ringer. It is a female born in 1995 and apart from one record about 20 miles away has always been seen in or around the area that I reported it. It has been rescued several times, from a ditch, a tree and a garden and has had fishing hooks removed from leg and neck. Despite all this misadventure she has raised several famlies.

Swan

Nice to hear her story- looks like she's a 'tough old bird'!
