An adult male white winged triller was seen on 8 and 11/11/03 on Lord Howe Island near the northern end of the airfield (8/11), and relocated on 11/11 at 8 am, because it was singing/calling just south of Cappella South, (about 1 km from the first site), when it was observed with a scope, to eliminate any possible doubt as to identification.

It is not amongst the vagrants in the list in the back of Simpson and Day and the local naturalist Ian Hutton confirmed he knew of no earlier records.
By the way LHI is a marvellous place and well worth a visit.
