Ian has mentioned two leg flags but no mention is made of colour of these
flags.  He also does not mention metal bands.  If the flags could be
observed well enough to see that there were two, the colour should be
obvious.  This would tell us where the bird was flagged.  If it had a leg
flag, it should also have had had a metal band.   Is it possible that there
was something else attached to the leg.  I do not in any way condone cruelty
to birds but consider that the conservation benefits of banding and flagging
far outweigh the inconvenience and possible occasional detriment to a bird.
