G'day all

I've had a reliable report of an Eastern Curlew on a small swamp close to
Lake Linlithgow (~20km east of Hamilton in sw Victoria).

The bird was seen last weekend but I couldn't find it yesterday.

A new addition to the Lake Linlithgow wetland complex birdlist which now
has 112 species.

How unusual is it to find one on an inland swamp?  I'm not sure how saline
this swamp would be but it has only had water in it for a month or so.
