Banded Pied Oystercatcher

Anyone know whether this combination is a Victorian Wader Study bird? Appears to be Green over white (left leg ) and triple yellow on right ? I seem to recall reading about these birds being banded in Victoria. Photographed at Marion Bay this am, in a flock of about 70 others.

Priscilla Park tells me that this bird was banded
as a juvenile at Pipeclay Lagoon on 7th January 1992. So it's in it's 15th year.
By no means the oldest as 2 birds at Gorringe's Beach are now in their 30s!
