Remarks :A tagged Sanderling was photographed by me today. Yellow tag with DBP letters and an aluminium ring on its tarsus was seen. The Sanderling was seen for 3 minutes walking not so normal like other Sanderlings, it was seen alone and not with the flock as usual we see Sanderlings in flocks. I am keen to know the place of ringing and all other details about the dates and its biometrics. We were ringing birds in Kutch with the BNHS bird migration study project in 1990 to 1992. - JT
