Today 2.45pm I went to Penrhyn Estuary to quick check
on Double-Banded Plovers. I was not disappointed with
good views of about 30 of them. What became more
interesting was several of them were actually banded
and with many kinds of banding combination. Some with
Yelow-Red-Metal, Black-Metal, Double-Red. (I have
digital photos of some of them)

As this is my first time seeing Double-banded Plover,
and don't know much about the banding practice for
this species, could someone point me to any reference
on the banding information? I suppose the banding
protocol for Double-banded Plover does not follow
those migratory birds in East Asian-Australasian

There were also 1 Pacific Golden Plover, 3 Red-necked
Stints and 50 Bar-tailed Godwit. These were obviously

Penrhyn Estuary has been 'developed' since I last
visited last year october. I wonder how bad it is
going to become in future.
