There were a number of birds with rings, short of me catching the bird there is no way I could work them out.  Leg flags look like local Victorian ones.  While the source footage here is good quality (filmed in 4K UHD and cropped to 1080p for editing to Vimeo)  I am unable to read the rings - not enough pixels!!.  The larger bird in the third clip with the yellowish legs is a Sharp-tailed Sandpiper.


More to come!

Hi David


From what I could see, two stints carried wide metallic bands on their left legs.  Do we know where such bands might have been applied?


What species are the bigger birds amongst them – one with yellowy legs?

Filmed near Melbourne recently by me - one of those moments when you are in the right place with the right gear etc....
