Feedback so far:
30/12/2010 Information gathered so far on the "flagging" of Waders in Australia. I have emailed the local, national contacts, and the most likely person in north-west Western Australia who uses the same positioning code of yellow flag on the tibia of the bird. As Mark Clayton noted, there appears to be no metal band to match the yellow flag.Shorebird Color Flagging Protocol on the EAAF (by color)
