Hi Bruce et. al
I wrote to Clive Minton, re. three Red necked Stints seen by us on 10/8/03
with flags i.e. orange above and green under on right leg.    His reply was
that they had put these flags on 4 birds on 9/7/03
at Penrhyn Road and we had seen 3 of them!   At the time the birds were
feeding normally and flying to and fro.   These birds were not the primary
target for flags etc. however they were catching Double-banded Plovers to
apply radio transmitters to follow their local movements.   This project has
been most successful, although the birds were feeding at night at the
Airport!    when he replied. The projects are showing results.   I'm not
sure if Clive subscribes to Birding-Aus but he always replies promptly to
any observations sent to him.    Judi
