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 ?

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...
