Hi all
interesting comments on the Old Bar Kentish Plover, whether there 
is one bird, or two, or whether the collar is complete etc. From the 
photos that Trevor Quested kindly sent me the collar looks pretty 
clear. On the Darwin bird the collar was broad, though sometimes 
when the bird was hunched up it was difficult to see that it was 
continuous. Now the questions:
I notice in the Handbook of Western Australian Birds that there is a 
record of Kentish Plover from Leslie Saltworks, 4 April 1993. Does 
anyone have more first hand info on this one? There was also a 
report from Darwin in the Bird Observer several or many years ago, 
(though post-1988) for which I have no details. I'd appreciate any 
info on this report if anyone can offer some. 
If the current Kentish sighting is going to be published, the writers 
will need this info as well, so it's worthwhile chasing it up.

Many thanks
