Hi all,

Please send all colour band observations to the Australian Bird and Bat Banding Scheme, you can do this online at:

EVERY band put on a wild bird in Australian territory has to be registered with them, including colour bands. Given this, if you send details to this body you will get a reply. In my experience they are very good about providing details.

This comes up repeatedly in birding-aus, so apologies for another posting, but it seems the message hasn't been picked up by birders.

If you do get a response or find out who should be advised for their benefit and so that we can learn the derivation of these neck banded swans, please let me know. I reported one here on BIRDING-AUS, two on BA VicGroup's Birdline Sightings, recorded details in two reports to Melbourne Water but have had no feed back. Hope you get better luck. Have had similar lack of response reporting banded Albatrosses
