Bird name puzzle

G'day all

I was reading comments by a western Victorian farmer yesterday about birds that
have disappeared from his district in his lifetime.  He talks about brolgas and
stony (sic) curlews and something called rock plovers (a very small population
remaining).  Any ideas what these might be?  Masked Lapwings are still common
and Banded Lapwings fluctuate but would still be frequently seen in some years.
Could he be referring to Plains Wanderers?

Unfortunately the comment was made in a confidential focus group exercise and I
can't track down the individual.
