  Please allow me to inform you the exciting news on the sighting of the China banded Bar-tailed Godwit in New Zealand, which is reported on the Issue 48 of the Newsletter of the Miranda Naturalists's Trust (Feb 2003). I am sorry for any cross-posting. In this newsletter, a nice picture with a flock (about 30 birds) of Bar-tailed Godwit, Turnstone and knots taken by Brian Chudleigh has been used as the front cover. Just in this picture, you can clearly see four birds with color bands on. Which are, two birds banded from the South Island of New Zealand with white color band on right leg, one bird banded from Southeast Australia with orange band on right leg and one bird banded in China (Ya Lu Jiang) with green and yellow band on it's right leg! With funding support from Environment Australia though the Wetlands International-Oceania for implementation of the Action Plan for the Conservation of Migratory Shorebirds in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway: 2001-2005, David Melville and Peter Collines from the Australasian Wader studies Group ran a wader banding training course with the China Bird Banding Centre at Yalu Jiang, Liaoning Province of northeast China in April 2002. This was the first wader banding undertake in the region. A total of 94 waders were color banded, among them 73 are Bar-tailed Godwit.
