Norwegian Ringed Oystercatcher
On 12th December 2010 a freshly dead Oystercatcher was found on the East Hoyle Sand Bank (see blog for that date). It was found to be ringed and the ring identified it having been ringed in Norway (see left) with the words "Stavanger Museum" inscribed on it (see right). Details have been sent off to the BTO and we await news of exactly where and when the bird was ringed. Photos Oystercatcher PSW and rings SRW.
