Hi all ,

My common name recollection from childhood is " Beechies " for
White-fronted Chats, these were a very common bird of the semi-tidal
samphire flats on Homebush Bay before it became a smelly mess of industrial
waste - now given a new lease on life.

I think the name may be derived in some way from the name" Bicheno "
although just how this could come about is not clear to me . Any ideas?
