25-Mar-11: Black-tailed Godwit B1 at Gei wai #11 again.

Interesting to see it coming back to the same area everyday, I wonder how long it will stay in Hong Kong before migration.

This is D2's first resighting photo, it was flagged on 21-Mar-11.

But it is a Terek Sandpiper rather than a Curlew Sandpiper, the bill is up-turn and legs are bright orange.

Cheers, Katherine

Brief translation:
大概翻譯一下:

觀鳥者於5月1日及6日在中國黃海渤海灣(距香港約1900公里)發現3隻繫有香港號碼腳旗的彎咀濱鷸, 為香港首個號碼腳旗的海外"重見"記錄. 過往黃海亦有繫有香港腳旗的濱鳥記錄.

3隻彎咀濱鷸皆是3月21日在米埔環誌, 其中一隻曾在4月2日在米埔出現.

現時繫有香港號碼腳旗濱鳥的本地重見記錄已逾100筆, 超過400隻共20種濱鳥已繫有香港號碼腳旗.

請繼續幫忙報告記錄, 以了解濱鳥的移動情況.

今天能再見到牠實在開心!
Good to see it again this summer!

Thanks John,
Regarding the transmitter aerial, yes, BE is carrying a transmitter.
It is a collaboration project with the Chinese Academy of Science to study migration of shorebirds on this EAAFlyway.

At the moment there are 5 Hong Kong Grey Plover (BE, BD, BB, BA and AU) fitted with transmitters in November and January.
All of them are still around Deep Bay area and are gathering very valuable local movement and habitat usage data for us.
More results will be shared later with this forum.

Cheers,
Katherine

Thanks for the resighting records.
All these are Grey Plover flagged in Hong Kong.
BB and BE were also fitted with a GPS tracker in November and January respectively.
Both birds stayed around Deep Bay so far.

It's found unable to fly in the Shenzhen Talent park. Then it was rescued by 深圳野生动物保护工作站。

I'm asking them for further updates.
Thank you very much kentluo!

Good luck finding it again.
