Thanks Graham,
I will "reprocess" the Red Knot - please do keep sending in "repeat"
sightings as they all add to our information on the timing of migration,
length of stop-over, etc.
The Red-necked Stint was probably flagged locally, so I won't process it
into the database.  But hopefully Phil can forward it on to anyone else
in the flagging team who is interested.  He may also be able to provide
details on the numbers of each species flagged in the local area.
All the best and thanks again,
Heather Gibbs

Down at Penrhyn this morning where I met Ray Gobbe. Rising to high tide,
north-east breeze, cool on the sandspit:
Bar-tailed Godwit    29 
Red Knot                8 
White-Fronted Tern    2 (Ray saw 3 yesterday)
Crested Tern            49
Red-Necked Stint    18
P Golden Plover         6
Sharpies                3
Other terns            Nil

Birds flagged or banded 
Same orange flagged Red Knot from Sunday 
NEW RN Stint Orange over Green - right tibia; banded left tarsus
With Ray's help we got very good views of the regular WFTern. It has a
distinct notch out of its lower mandible about half way along. The other
WFT was an immature.
Cheers, Graham Buchan
