Leaving the reserve late afternoon I spied that the 2 Spoonbills had returned for a night roost (high tide now and again early morning I guess). So I cycled along the Tarka Trail and took a closer look: one of them has yellow flags below and above the mid-leg joint (the ankle really) not sure if this has been recorded here before?

Then I met Rob, who had just taken pics in poor light - there may be other colour rings I couldn't see. I'll try to get another look tomorrow to confirm.
