海外足旗涉禽目擊紀錄 Overseas leg-flagged Shorebird Sightings

Overseas leg-flagged Shorebird Sightings

Dear members,

You might have seen some shorebirds with colour flags in Deep Bay area every year, please note flag(s) colour(s), position(s), species and percentage of breeding plumage of those birds. We could see these shorebirds with local flags (White over Yellow) or overseas flags (e.g. orange, orange over yellow, yellow, black over white, etc). Members are encouraged to submit their sightings of leg-flagged shorebirds, especially those with overseas leg-flags. Such information can be posted here, through email (legflags@hkbws.org.hk) or PM.

Thank you very much,
Tse Wai Lun

會員們, 大家好,

每年都會有大量涉禽經過或停留於香港米埔,當中有些是帶有足旗的。除了有本地的(即上白下黃),也有一些是海外的(如黃,橙,黑,白等)。請你將資料記下,如顏色,位置,該鳥的種類,繁殖羽毛的百分比,然後把資料寄給我(電郵至legflags@hkbws.org.hk 或 pm),或張貼在下面。

謝謝
謝偉麟

Ivan, I think it is unlikely that the GSP was originally flagged with white only. I have previously corresponded with people from New Zealand (where white flags are used) and they reported that they have never flagged a GSP (which I think is rare there).

Your GSP may have had a very faded yellow flag (NW Australia), but probably the most likely is that this is a Chongming bird (black and white) which has lost the black flag. This was the final conclusion of the bird I saw last year, which I saw on 27th March and may even have been the same bird!

Great Knot - three flagged birds, all Yellow flag on right leg.

             YC?

Curlew Sandpiper - Orange flag right leg no number.

The two Great Knot with unknown digits are RYN and YCR. I saw both on Saturday and have reported these. YCR is interesting because it was last seen in Australia (Broome) on 25th March, only 10 days before it was first reported in HK (on 4th April).

The last bird in post 9 (Curlew Sandpiper P1) is a Hong Kong-flagged bird (the white upper flag is slightly discoloured). This bird was last reported in Bohai Bay (northeast China) on 24th May 2013. We get good numbers of resightings of HK-flagged Curlew Sandpipers in Bohai Bay, which is clearly an important stopover for our birds (but is also under serious threat from development!)

Flagged Red-necked Stint, Mai Po 24th April 2014

(North) Western Australia ?

FWIW the ring can be read in a couple of photos…   "737 84"

But these would be more fun if they put letters on the stint-size flags -

Two flags for the price of one

Mai Po Boardwalk, 24th April 2014

Yellow over orange - so that's "SW Western Australia", I believe. The lower flag has faded somewhat

The ring has "035" reading vertically… perhaps the ring size ?

Yes John, vertical "035" is the ring size and series no.

Same as JOHN's Photo

I have contacted the Australian Wader Studies Group about this bird. Fortunately the ring number is enough to know which individual is involved. "76141" was flagged on 22 July 2003 at Nene Valley in the south-east of South Australia. It was one year old at the time.
The bird is now 11 years old, and has presumably migrated each year between South Australia and Siberia - an impressive achievement for such a small bird!

We get very few reports of movements of stints, so this record is very useful. If anyone gets close views of a ringed stint it may be worth trying to get photos from several different angles to work out the full ring number, as was possible in this case. Congratulations to John and Wah jai for managing to get such close shots of this bird.

South Australia-flagged Red-necked Stints

Thanks for that information, John, I didn't know stints could live as long as twelve !

Here is a more distant photo from among my shots from May 10th.  A different bird, I think - fuller breeding plumage.

But far too far for reading of the leg rings...
