Sanderling with Bling on Fuerteventura

Remiss of me placed this in the wrong thread last week, shot on Fuerteventura 26/12/19 at Caleta de Fuste.

Don't know if there's enough detail on these shots for any meaningful description?

Cheers

Did you contact the project I suggested when you posted on the other thread Ken?

If you go on to the cr-b link and scroll down there’s an exact email contact for birds that have the combination of 4 c-rings (2 on each leg) and a flag above the knee (the exact colours or leg aren’t necessary because you could just email the image.)

crbirding says ‘all Sanderling flagged in Africa and Europe belong to ‘this project’

I think its a
yellow flag above left knee
white over dark blue below left knee
green over yellow below right knee?

I could have the right and left legs the wrong way round - its hard to make out which is the closest leg to the camera!

Better than trying to describe what you think you can see on the photos would be to email the original photos (maximum resolution) to the project managers. It'll be much easier for them to figure out what you have there, as they're familiar with all the colours and colour combinations. If you don't have field notes (anything that could add to the photos info), then making the photos available to them is the best way to avoid interpretation errors.
