"Queensland Wader", the newsletter of the QWSG, regularly reports each issue on leg flagged and banded shorebirds. The Pied Oystercatcher you saw is not from the NW of WA, but was flagged in NSW. It's part of a project tracking movements of PO's from Victoria & NSW (Victorian flagged birds also have yellow leg flags and numbers, but on the right tibia). I can't recall who are the originators or managers of this project. PO's thus flagged have been regularly seen & reported from SEQ wader sites over the past couple of years. QWSG requests that all leg flagged sightings in Qld (incl. these PO's) be reported to QWSG's Phil Cross .
