Hi folks, yesterday's (Monday 6/12) views of the Dowitcher were really
excellent and it has been initially identified as a Short-billed
Dowitcher(Limnodromus griseus - probably hendersoni).
The group involved in yesterday's viewing included Mike Carter, Tony
Palliser, John Cox, John Hatch and many others. The bird, which was
originally discovered by John Hatch and David Close on Wed 1/12, is in
association with Red and Great Knots. Tides were such that the bird did not
reappear until Sunday 5/12.
Price is a saltfield some 130km north of Adelaide by road on the Yorke
Peninsula. Access is by permit or by prior arrangement with the saltfield
Tony Russell.

   There's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing a new bird is there?
