Hi all, Bill here

Peter Shute and I spent a very productive weekend up at Chiltern - being 
excellently guided by Michael Ramsey.  Saw a pile of birds, five new ones for 
me, but this one caught my eye.

We were watching some Grey Crowned Babblers on Up River Road Gooramadda when a 
pair of Shelduck flew over.  I took a photo, as, well, I was there, and only 
now while going over it I notice there was something around the duck's neck.  
I've put it onto Flickr at 

Does anyone have any theories?  One possibility is that it's a piece of rubbish 
like a plastic ring pull, but there's also the possibility it's a GPS tracker 
or something.
