I wonder if the Beach Stone-Curlew now spotted at Kurnell is the same bird as 
has been haunting the South Coast for the past few months.  Supposedly one was 
loafing about the Shoalhaven estuary last spring (September, October? I didn't 
note my informant's exact words, though he did say it was the first sighting 
there this century!) It disappeared, but in the early months of this year one 
was seen for some time in the Thirroul area.  That too went away, but shortly 
afterwards I observed one for a few days on the flats at Shoalhaven Heads 
again.  Perhaps it is now working its way up North again.
