Last Sunday, 25/03/07 Birds Australia North Queensland Group and various members of the public gathered to 'Wave the Waders Goodbye". Among the observed birds were two with flags.

A Great Knot had dark blue over white flags on the right leg.

A Grey-tailed Tattler had mid blue on the left leg. This had some inscription but we could not read it.

I presume that both these birds were banded in Japan and it was fitting that a Japanese born member found them both.
