Dear all,
The orange leg flags (reported by Alan Morris) are Victorian waders on their return migration from their breeding grounds. We can expect to see more orange flagged birds and if you are lucky birds from other countries in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway. An orange-flagged Eastern Curlew was seen at the Kurnell Shorebird Lagoon (previous known by many as Metromix Pond) on 1 September and a blue-flagged Grey-tailed Tattler from Japan was observed by Brian Speechley on the rock groins at Kurnell. Waders will continue to trickle through NSW for another couple of months or so (even up to December for some birds). Any colour flag sightings should be reported to Clive Minton who will tell you where to bird is from and add your very important observations to the AWSG database, helping us to plot migration routes and staging areas across the world.
Please note neither Clive nor I are able to be on the birding-aus list server due to already overloaded incoming email. But please don't hesitate to send your observations or queries direct or cc.
Happy birding, Phil Straw, Vice Chair, AWSG
