How many markings per bird?

I am currently researching bird ringing and ring reading, because I am working on a concept for a ring reading app at work.

I have a question about the various types of markings:

on cr-birding.org (http://www.cr-birding.org/node/112) I read this:
"...Each leg bone can have up to four colour marks attached. Wing and neck up to two..."

What I understand here is that beside four possible marks per leg, there can be two wing tags on each wing and two two neck collars on the same bird. Is this correct?

Thank you :)

That is correct, however most probably never happens. I have seen birds with a neck collar and three rings on their legs, I can't remember any bird with more than 4 markings that I'v seen.

Yes, and that is limited as most of the roginal ringing data is not there, just other persons observations of the same bird - there is some ringing data

Black-tailed Godwits are routinely marked with up to six colour rings.

Just seen a Redshank on Facebook with six as well.
