As Julian says........  
I reported one a few years ago that had been banded as a chick the previous year I think.

Denis – the Bird and Bat Banding Scheme people want this info and will reply to your report with where and when the bird was banded 

They have a page on how to report sightings here:

I sent in another Pied Oystercatcher recently which it turns out was 21 years old! (19 years since being banded). I’m told they live up to around 30 years.

Dear COG members


I was wondering if someone could suggest how I can track down the people who flagged this Pied Oystercatcher?



The bird was seen at Shoalhaven Heads, near Nowra, NSW, on 28 December 2010.


To the best of my knowledge, these birds are not migratory, but someone might like to record the "sighting"   - but who?
