I had a Pied Oystercatcher at Manly wader roost (Brisbane, SE Qld) this
morning with a large yellow flag on it's left upper leg with L4 clearly
marked. It had a largish metal ring on its upper right leg too.

The only reference I can find for a yellow flag in that position is NWA
- presumably North West Australia - seems a long way for a PO to fly?

I will report it thru the usual channels but just wondered if anyone can
shed any light on it?
