A very brief note to report that Graham Wardle from
Atherton & I got an excellent view of a single non-breeding Red-necked
Phalarope late yesterday afternoon on Wide Bay, Lake Moondarra, Mount
To my knowledge, this species has been sighted 3
times at Lake Moondarra.
Other Shorebird/Waders from overseas
1 (two weeks ago there was + 400)
- Pacific Golden
Sharp-tailed Sandpipers 100s
did follow up the recent Birding-Aus lead of Nick Dymond's (from the Faroe
Islands) sighting of the R-n P on the Tablelands Hwy (NT) at the Playford
River but the 1100km round trip was unsuccessful. I have heard on the grapevine
that one was at the Alice Springs Sewage Ponds. Any more info available on that
will no doubt, publish more details of the observation.
