Allan, It is great that Broome BO has turned up one of these exciting Asian
passerines.  I hope people are still looking for these and other migrants.
Several other species should be on the cards to turn up, and this year may
be better than most because of the drought and fires.  My predictions for
new species are Yellow-browed Warbler (=Inornate Warbler, P.inornatus),
Stonechat, Sand Martin, and others!  Cheers, Richard.
