Just a couple of recent obs that seemed to me slightly unusual, but that may
simply reflect my ignorance of the area. Any comments would be welcomed; I
have of course consulted the field guides, Atlas etc.

1. Bush Stone-curlew at dusk (6pm), in the headlights by the roadside 20k
south of Emerald (Rollestone road), on 3 May. Where do they start to become
rare as we come south?

2. Flocks of Figbirds in Roma 23 May; seems a long way inland, though the
atlas records them from near there.
