Bidston's Swans

For those eagle eyed visitors who visit Bidston Moss and have managed to get up close to the male Mute Swan on the Main Lake, then you might have noticed a metal ring on one of its legs. Local birder and photographer Alan Howgate was recently fortunate enough to temp the bird out of the water were he was able get the code off the ring to send off to the BTO and we've now found out that he was ringed at Sefton Park, Liverpool 2 years ago.
