Mute swan with ring 7CVE wandering about on the ice.
No interactions present.
I have reported this to the BTO who have forwarded it to the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust.
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.
Nice to hear her story- looks like she's a 'tough old bird'!
