This indicated that the Little Tern had been captured in Taiwan. Little Tern “M1” from Taiwan with Greater Sand Plovers. We have observed an individually marked Grey-tailed Tattler from Taiwan each year in the non-breeding part of their year since late 2012 and it is especially nice to see its safe return to Broome each year.

A Grey-tailed Tattler flagged In Taiwan returns annually

10,000 Birds

You may remember my recent posts where we discovered a Little Tern that had been flagged in Taiwan on Cable Beach. I immediately contacted the banders in Taiwan and they confirmed that it was one of their birds and it had received its metal band and flags on 4th August 2012 at Kinmen Island in Taiwan and had not been observed since! The other interesting fact is that it has never been observed back in Taiwan and it has never been observed anywhere else in the Flyway.

The Little Tern was also blue and white flags, but it was a white flag above a blue flag on the left tarsus and that indicates it has been flagged in Taiwan. This time we were walking the beach near the port in Broome where we regularly encounter large flocks of shorebirds at this time of year.
