Hi folks

I had a flying visit of just 7 hours on Flinders Island in Bass Strait on Saturday for work (more on that later).

Amongst a range of interesting birds at the site was Painted Button-quail. The various sources indicate that PBQ is generally scarce-rare in Tasmania along the east side, plus on Flinders and King Islands, but not much else. Any Tasmanians (present or expatriate) care to comment on the status of this bird in the state of Tasmania, and particularly Flinders Island?
