Hi Donna,

Last fall/winter I was fortunate to have photographed the entire  
banding process on two occassions with the DEP at Hammo. They banded  
quite a few sanderlings and dunlins and a few Black-bellied Plover and  
Ruddy Turnstone. It is possible that these birds could be from either  
of those banding set-ups or as Chris mentions; from the Milford  
banding process. Recaptures of banded birds does happen a small  
percentage of the time, but since there are so many banding set-ups  
along the coast and so many birds are beanded-who knows?

I will be posting the shorebird banding from Hammo on my blog in the  
near future. (I have been going through the images prepping them).  
Keep an eye out for the report, it was a fascinating process.

Happy Birding,
