In light of recent requests for banding information I thought I'd repost a note 
from Chris Hassell to the Oriental Birding listserv.

You never know, some Thai or norther Aust birds may head the wrong way over the 
next month or so or come to other parts of Australia at the end of boreal 
summer breeding.

Note also that over 4000 shorebirds have been flagged in Thailand these 
past few years, including 100-plus most recently within the past week. 
The Thai birds bear a black flag above a green flag, and may also 
already be on their way north. It is important also to note the shape of 
the flags from Thailand (oblong indicating the Inner Gulf of Thailand; 
tapered flags indicating the peninsula).
