2012 - Bird Ringing in 2013 - 2014
Taylor, A.M. (2014) Annual Report of the Lundy Field Society 2013 63:56-59
Manx Shearwaters continued their rapid increase as a breeding species and topped the species totals for the first time. The 492 birds ringed included 335 chicks. Amoung the adults there were significant numbers of the birds that had first been caught in previous years. Six had originally been ringed as chicks on Lundy, and these included one of just seven chicks ringed in 2005, the first year of chick ringing, following rat eradication.

An interesting selection of recoveries and controls received during 2013 include [...] an 18-year-old Lesser Black-backed Gull found dead on Skokholm, where it had perhaps settled to breed.
