Hi all

Would some one be kind enough to confirm that i have
interpreted Alan's sighting correctly please? ie. That
some (person) has multiple banded Little Terns (an
endangered species) on both legs, four bands in total
on each bird?

Taking into consideration the welfare and the
population status of the animal, would the placing of
4 separate bands on 1 small rare bird be regarded as
reasonable under the guise of ethical wildlife
