Hi Birders,
Last Monday I reported a Red-necked Stint & a Sharp-tailed Sandpiper at the Ash Island Ponds, NSW were wearing orange leg flags on their right legs which as Phil Straw pointed out, means that they were banded in Victoria. Today at the same location one of the 400+ Avocets at the ponds was also sporting an orange leg flag on its right leg!
