Hi Folks,

  For those that are interested and at the risk of starting another 
bird-banding debate, I observed a banded Pied Oystercatcher yesterday at 
Killarney Beach near Port Fairy. On its left leg it had (top to bottom) a green 
plastic band, a red plastic band and a yellow band (possibly metal). The right 
leg (t to b) had 2 green bands a 1 gold metal band. I'm hope this info will be 
of use.

  Also on the the beach were a pair of Hooded Plovers, one I'm sad to say had 
some cord or fishing line around its head but it did appear healthy and was 
actively feeding etc. There were several Red-capped plovers as well.
