Hi David,

In the 1970's Graham and Annette Cam and I banded a number of Nankeen Kestrels in the Hawkesbury lowlands. It is unlikely that your bird is one of these due to the great time lapse but I would also be interested to know if someone is banding Kestrels there now. I know that Penny Olsen and others is/has been banding them in the Canberra area. A Kestrel that I banded at Woolooware, southern Sydney, was recovered at Moggill, Queensland so your bird may have travelled. The bird is definitely not one of mine as I always band on the right tarsus, except when using multiple bands like on Ospreys.
