The answer is that they will come back to the same place.  This have been
well and truly proven by retraps.  They continue to return to the same
beach and general area over the subsequent years.  This is just the same as
cockatoos return to the same tree, shearwaters to the same burrow, etc.
Banding has not changed the habits.
