This autumn, Professor CHANG Qing of Nanjing Normal University, together with a team of overseas researchers, banded over 1,770 waders in Rudong and Dongtai area, Jiangsu, China. Over 650 of 24 wader species were fitted with engraved legflags (green plain flag over blue flag with white engraving). Among them were 4 Spoon-billed Sandpipers (carrying yellow engraved flag). It is hoped that more information can be gained from resighting of these individuals.
