I hope you didn't think that the 'Little Stint' banded at Werribee (my report on 30.12.03) is unique in carrying an orange leg flag. Thousands of Red-necked Stints are similarly marked. Send me your photo and I'll give you my opinion. Apparently even this 'in-hand' bird requires further analysis to confirm the identity.

Hi fellow birders,

I was at Altona at during my lunch break to see some waders there.
There were several thousand Red-Necked Stints there as well as
several Greenshanks, Curlew Sandpipers and Sharptailed Sandpipers.

I was just going through my photos when I found one with a Orangish-
red tag and remembered that a little stint was tagged a few weeks
ago at the WTP. Im hopping that this is the Little Stint that was
tagged, but It seems very similar to the rest. I didnt even notice
the tag while I was there.

I can email the pictures out when I get home, if anyone want to
confirm this for me?
