Colour banded Black-necked Stork

Hi all,

 

I colour-banded a nestling Black-necked (Satin) Stork at Gilletts Ridge (Clarence Valley Northern NSW) on 12 December 2007.  I placed a yellow band on the upper left leg and a green band on the upper right leg.  It was observed at Port Macquarie on 12 May 2012.  I lost many emails from my old computer and now don’t have the original correspondence reporting the sighting.  I was of the view that the Australian Bird and Bat Banding Scheme (ABBBS) would have received the details but they haven’t.  I have only the date and the general location ‘Port Macquarie’ of the record but would be keen to receive more details to allow them to be lodged with the ABBBS.  I am hoping that the person/s who observed the banded bird may be a subscriber to Birding-aus or someone may know who saw the bird.  Any information would be appreciated.

 

Regards

 

Greg
